To fix that, either do what Xual said, or make a symbolic link in your
root directory.  How?
ln -s C:/CYGNUS/B19/H-I386~1/bin /bin

That'll do the job.  I recommend that you goto Rob's web page
( for Cygwin help.

As for the Makefile problems, Windows stuffs up the tabs on you.  Where
the compiler is having a spit, goto the beginning of that line, press tab,
and delete the whitespaces until you reach the $(CC) this for
each line that fails.

Note, for this, *DONT* use DOSEdit.  i.e. by going into the command
prompt and typing "edit".  USE NOTEPAD!

I assume noone's made a faq on cygwin yet, so maybe I'll write one up.  If
anyone wishes to submit material, email me here.
