Right, because bin/circle doesn't exist. You have bin/circle.exe

Which is likely, since it sounds like circle.exe was compiled on
your Windows machine.

If you actually are running some form of UNIX under an emulator then
it will need to be the same OS and hardware architecture as the
target host. But it sounds like you're compiling under Cygwin, which
is not an emulator--just a UNIX *environment* for Windows.

Short answer: configure and make on the target server, not on your
bittybox at home.
