If you use a subdirectory for the src and obj directories, you'll see this
problem.  For example, when I used /cygwin/src and /cygwin/obj, the newlib
configure script tanked.  When I moved them to /src and /obj, I was at
least able to build.

I'm currently seeing an access fault in fhandler_base::de_linearize() but
when I attach gdb, it doesn't show up.  Arrgh.  This looks like maybe a
problem.  Any one else run into this?  (NT4.0, B20.1 tools and src).
