Isn't there another issue here, the virtual path given by the config tool 
when it accesses the files?

On my system, the mounts are something like
/ C:\CYGWIN binmode
/c c:\ textmode  <<<---- for sources

So if I put my epk in / (according to cygwin), then the config tool will be 
accessing it in binary mode if it uses /net-1.0b1.epk or in text mode if it 
uses /c/cygwin/net-1.0b1.epk.

Confusing! Or do I misunderstand how cygwin works with conflicts like this?
