Isn't it a better idea to set the svn:eol-style = LF property on the script
This way they will use LF as the EOL marker regardless of the OS you are
working on...

It appears that the changed Cygwin bash handling of \r\n in script files
(done in bash versions after 3.1.6) is here to stay.

Therefore it seems that the use of the 'igncr' workaround is required when
using current versions of cygwin bash so that errors do not occur when
making Wireshark on Windows.

I've added a small hack to config.nmake (SVN 20034) so that 'igncr' will be
used when invoking a version of bash which has that option.

(I chose this approach rather than an approach such as using an environment
variable so we would not be requiring users to know about and take some
special action when using cygwin bash versions newer than 3.1.6).
