Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Why is the Win32 buildbot running with the current configuration

Hi List!

The current default settings (config.nmake / Makefile.nmake) don't run on my machine without changes - and I don't seem to be the only one (see prokashs problems lately).
I'm wondering why the buildbot is running without problems - I guess 
it's still using old cygwin tools.
These are the things I've noticed to be problematic:

- config.nmake: using cygwin python, which doesn't seem to work for some time (changing to native Win32 python works fine) - Makefile.nmake: using cygwin bash with the setup target (using dos2unix to convert the line endings of the corresponding bash file works fine)
The switch to native python also requires to change the recommendation 
in the User's Guide accordingly.
The dos2unix tool should be already available with a default cygwin 
installation, but native python will be missing on the buildbot I would 

I'll change the configuration accordingly soon. I'll guess the buildbot will fail from that moment until Gerald installs the Win32 python :-(
