I just a few days ago downloaded the latest cygwin
beta and appearently they fixed that autoconf bug
as it works fine.
Which is curious that Nathan had problems, cause a
clean download of cygwin with a clean copy of circle
worked fine for me.
Unless he just downloaded the user utils and not the
full development package (user.exe instead of
full.exe), which is the only thing I can think of.

Either that or he has an older version of the
beta that still has some autoconf bugs.
