Note, fork requires the cygwin1.dll file.  Are you prepared for that?

I've read all the other response, etc.  However, if you want to use
the .bat file you can do

cmd /c build.bat

take care that your PATH has all you need and note that /posix/paths
don't 't work with MinGW gcc.  But since you need fork() you'll need
to use the Cygwin GCC anyway.
