Right.  But this list isn't a general help-desk for all kinds of problems.
We have to limit it to those having to do with Cygwin otherwise the traffic
on the list would become completely unbearable.  This question of yours is
not Cygwin-specific.  Please consider this before asking future questions.

However, the answer is to remove the spaces before and after '='.
