Thanks, Dave. I did compile a hello-world.c program, and it ran, but
I had also compiled PLT scheme v360 before (needed to bootstrap
Larceny) and had run it without problem as well (I had thought this
might be a permission issue, because what bash actually reports is
"Access denied" - the underlying error took further investigation).
$ cygcheck ./larcenybin.exe
