Mmm.  I've never built on a Cygwin host so I don't know of the specific
problems involved.  You should also mail to the cygwin list for more
expert advise.  I stuck to Linux for speed and knowing I would have less
problems (in theory anyway).

It might be something as simple as a binary mount or text mount setting.
I think it is advisable to have all cygwin mounts as binary.  This reason
is that not all the the GNU tools have been fully ported to cygwin and
they get confused with the linefeed/carriage-return thingy.
