to avoid such problems it make sense to add the cygwin on the first position
instead of the end. It should no problem for other applications, because the settings
are lost if CMD.exe is closed
I would suggest to change the batch example in the devel guide to the following
which is working well in my environment...
set PATH=.;%PATH%
set PATH=c:\cygwin\bin;%PATH%
have a nice day,

yes now I could also interpret the problem in the "verify_tools" output,
but before it was not clear for me as the tool found version of grep.
I was not clear that this was not enought...
C:\wireshark>nmake -f Makefile.nmake verify_tools

"nmake -f makefile.nmake verify_tools" will show you the paths for each required
tool. Is this sufficient?
