Hmm.  First, I think you can just drop the
  -e "s,\s.*$$,,"

part; it serves no useful purpose, and `\s' isn't portable AFAIK.  Then,
although SUSv3 specifies the cpio storage format, it doesn't specify the
`cpio' tool, but only pax.  Practically, you can't rely on that, though.
I find neither of them in my MSYS installation, nor my Cygwin
installation (although I bet they are part of Cygwin; I just guess they
are not part of the basic install).

How about going the other way and creating `MANIFEST' from the data you
are collecting in  Just an idea, you know.
