I've found it necessary to include also the following files in /bin
because certain config & makefiles seem to assume their presence without
checking, and fail when they are not present:

  awk
  bash
  sh (== bash)
  cat
  cmp
  echo
  find
  pr
  pwd
  sed
  tr

--Chuck

(p.s. also check out my usr-local tarball for cygwin snapshots at
