I am using this mount table on Win98
Cygwin V1.1
with cygwin-inst-20000525.tar.gz overlaid

C:\cygwin\bin  /usr/bin  user    binmode
C:\cygwin\lib  /usr/lib  user    binmode
C:\cygwin  /        user    binmode
c:    /c       user    textmode
d:    /d       user    textmode
e:    /e       user    textmode
f:    /f       user    textmode

While compiling gcc complained about an 
obtuse error in <stdlib.h>
which I knew was not the problem

With much head pounding I discovered that a 
previously included file had DOS line endings.

locally supplied
/usr/local/include/GL/gl.h

On a hunch, applying a Dos2Unix filter sent
gcc merrily on it's way.

My question is.
Are we going to have to ensure that all included  files have 
Unix style line endings ??

BTW
Many thanks to all involved with the V1.1 release
Despite it's <new quirks> it seems to be 
a much improved enviroment :-))
