Cygwin 1.3.10 Setup.exe Install Problems With MSVCRT.DLL and source code on Win98
Thu Apr 11 12:55:00 GMT 2002


	I am glad to have been of help finding this bug.  However, a quick
question if I may.

	The file  Is this part of the setup.exe source files

	If so, what is the compiler used for it?  I assume it is GNU C++ for
DOS/Windows? (from a comment in  What version is it?  Where can you
get this compiler?

	Can anyone check out this code?  Is it on Sourceforge?  It might be fun
to look at the code, and see if I could figure out what is going on
with the source code install (my 2nd problem).

Thanks the help in advance.
