Thank you Corinna,

IMO This will make Cygwin ported applications much
more accessible to the less technically inclined. 

There still seems to be a problem with distributions checked 
out from a CVS repository onto a text mounted drive when
Cygwin is installed as binary.   The only work around I have found
is to run the Makefile.am files through a Dos2Unix filter prior to 
invoking automake.

This was not a problem with the Perl that Charles Wilson was distributing
and the gnu distibution of automake, or tarball source distributions.

Does anyone know what the difference might be between the two Perl 
distributions that is causing this ?  

I tried looking at the Perl source but got 'lost' quickly.
