In my case I had a collection of "tools" that I had acquired over the years (some as far back as the MKS toolkit!!) that were in my path and so were hiding the recently installed Cygwin versions - so yes, checking the required tools reside in the expected location would have highlighted my issue immediately.

So:

    We should add 'cat' to the list of tools checked.

It also sounds like:
    We should require certain tools (bash, bison,...,sed,,...)
    (in addition to the already checked /usr/bin/find) should
    be in /usr/bin.

    Does this seem too restrictive ?

    ISTR previous cases where something other with the same
    name as a cygwin exec (e.g. sed) was found because of the
    way PATH was set up.
