Bash command file gets stuck

Sun Dec 14 03:35:00 GMT 2008

I made a command file named gcc.bat:

#! /bin/sh
cc `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0` ${1}.cpp -o ${1}

I set the execution flag:
-rwx--x--x+  1 pd None       71 Dec 13 17:25 gcc.bat

I typed the cc command in by hand and it worked fine.  But when I try to run 
the command file from the Cygwin command line:

$ ./gcc.bat murq

E:\cygwin\install\home\pd>#! /bin/sh
'#!' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or 
batch file.

E:\cygwin\install\home\pd>cc `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0` ${1}.cpp -o 

At this point, the Cygwin command line window is stuck.  Nothing I type in has 
any effect, including Ctrl-C and Ctrl-Z.  I had to use the close window button 
at the top right of the window.

I downloaded Cygwin (complete, everything) last Friday (5 Dec) and installed 
everything on a clean E: disk on Vista.

I need some advice on how to get command files to work.
