Which version are you building?  Around 1.0pre14 that was converted
from a shell script into a C++ subroutine.

Are you building with Scons (  If not, I would install
that and build with "scons" and then "scons install".  The build_arx
and install_arx scripts are rather simplistic, and probably can't
handle this situation.

If that doesn't work, the symlinks from $PREFIX/libexec/arch/arch/* to
$PREFIX/libexec/arch/*/* may be causing problems.  Is the symlink
my-id present in $PREFIX/libexec/arch/?

I've delayed doing builds on Cygwin until I've managed to remove
hackerlab.  It has some unportable assumptions that may bite you.  The
next release of ArX (coming out any day now) will probably depend on
gnome-vfs, though hackerlab will still be there.  The next release
after that will probably completely remove hackerlab.
