Re: NEWBIE: configure problems

I am using Cywin GNU under Windows NT Server and I have had no problems
configuring and compiling my mud.  In fact, I didn't have to use "sh
.\configure", I just ran ".\configure". (Actually I just used "configure",
I added "." to my path environment variable.)

The very first time I used Cygwin GNU, it was under Windows 98 and I had a
little problem with the "configure" and "autorun" shell scripts.  I think
the command I used was "configure | sh" or "autorun | sh &".  I can't
remember what I did to fix it, but eventually I had the shell scripts
running exactly as if they were actually on a Unix box.

I hope some of this helps.

  First post and I'm already starting with the dumb questions.

  Since I'm cheap and I'm spending money on hardware instead of a decent
compiler, I'm using freeware to compile a copy of Circle 3.0. It doesn't
help that I'm a Unix retard.
  I'm using Cygwin GNU-Win32, the Unix emulator for Windows. I've got
their version 20.0, and I've managed to set up my /bin and /tmp
correctly despite their name changes to some of the paths. I've got the
Cygwin bin executables directory mounted to "/bin." I get "sh
./configure" up and running, and it goes through all the checks,
finishes everything up, then ends with a mournful "./configure: /bin/sh:
not found" message that keeps me from getting anywhere.
  Once I can get past this and the make, I can probably do fine since
I'm OK with gcc . . . I just suck at Unix and can't figure out what I'm
doing wrong here. Any help/flames/comments would be most welcome.
