Oh, but you can )) - and a /usr, a /bin, and so on.
The mount command allows you to mount a FAT directory on /etc without ever
having made a /etc before, as you would in U**x, eg:
bash$ mount $CYGFS/H-i386-cygwin32 /etc
There is some suggestion that this possibility may disappear in future
cygwin releases. I do hope not.
As for the ..._INCLUDE_PATH variables, they appear not to be needed if you
leave things in the standard places. See the discussion on unlibsubdir.
