Nothing compiles

I was not going to say anything on that.
Incomplete setups are the cause nowadays.
Problem is that the setup.exe sometimes stops during installation.
And a problem with me is, there two files that give me problems when setting
up. Perl 5.6.1-1 gets marked as experimental, expect source tar ball crashes
when reached. This is trying to install from the network. My connection is
permenant, on LAN hooked up to a WAN running at the newest ADSL connection
speeds. Supposed to be better than cable modem. I'm managed to collect the
source code to the development tools and communication utilities and VIM.

It's probably in your windows/system directory.  Please don't do that.
Delete this file and everything will work..

I don't believe that Cygwin installation ever put cygwin1.dll in the
windows system directory.
