Not quite it!

Rational can also add these to your environment:

So I added this in my cygwin batch file as well.
SET TERMCAP=/etc/termcap
SET TERMINFO=/usr/share/terminfo

Another annoying thing is with Rational Common in your path, autotooled 
projects find a program called hostinfo which pops up a windows dialog box 
during auto configuraton.  The fall back position I think is hostname.  Now 
I consulted man pages on hostinfo and I can't really tell you the difference 
between what hostinfo and hostname output.

I created a softlink in the cygwin bin directory.
ln -s /bin/hostname hostinfo

I cannot tell whether this is correct or not as I don't have access to a 
system that has a real hostinfo to compare the output.
It didn't appear to cause problems for the autotooled projects as they had 
properly discovered my hostname.

And not to mention Rational Test has a perl.exe in it's directory making the 
number of perls on my machine 4 in number . *sigh*
