"/usr/bin and /usr/lib are by default also automatic mount points 
generated by the Cygwin DLL similar to the way the root directory is 
evaluated. /usr/bin points to the directory the Cygwin DLL is installed 
in, /usr/lib is supposed to point to the /lib directory."

$ mount
C:/cygwin/bin on /usr/bin type ntfs (binary,auto)
C:/cygwin/lib on /usr/lib type ntfs (binary,auto)
C:/cygwin on / type ntfs (binary,auto)
