Guess #1:  Don't use WinZIP (or any other windows GUI program) to unpack
.tar.gz files for Cygwin, because they mangle the line ends from LF to CRLF.
Use "tar xvzf meep-0.10.1.tar.gz" in a bash shell instead.

Guess #2:  If it's not that, you may have installed cygwin in textmode, or be
unpacking your tarball on a textmode mountpoint.  Please run "cygcheck -srv >
cygcheck.out" in a bash shell, and post the resulting cygcheck.out file - as
an *attachment*, please - to the list.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
