Looks good.

The version of Bash I HAD was version 3.1.17(9) this was downloaded from
Cygwin as 3.1-9 (Cygwin has another version 3.2.3-5 which I did not

Followinf your emails I downloaded an earlier version 3.1.17(6) from
Cygwin as 3.1-6 and this has worked. Thanks for the help it looks like
the new line characters and bash version caused the problem.

Below is the output I got using Bash 3.1.17(6)


	bash tools\win32-setup.sh --appverify  cl  link  nmake  bash
bison	 flex	 env	 grep	 /usr/bin/find	 perl	 env python

It is likely that you have tripped over a Cygwin bash problem where the
latest version expects *nix line endings.

Check your bash version by using "bash --version".  AFAIK 3.1.17 or
earlier are OK.  If you have a later version I think you can downgrade
using the Cygwin setup app.

As it seems unlikely that the Cygwin folks are going to revert the
change I think we should do something about this issue, e.g. passing the
"-O igncr" option to bash.
