Hello Keith, Keith, and everyone else ;-)

OK, there are some issues with your path, it seems.  The first `cat'
found in $PATH should be the MSYS one.  I assume that many of your other
failures also relate to this issue.

The Autoconf version used in creating

is 2.59e.

In the hope that fixing the path issue will fix many other of your
issues as well, there is one thing that still worries me: the code
expanded from the Autoconf macros AC_CACHE_SAVE/_AC_CACHE_DUMP
(which may be executed as part of the exit trap in the configure
script) looks like it triggers MinGW's automatic path conversion
(which in turn leads to some missing backslashes, and some added
path prefixes):

I can't test this right now, but IIRC there have not been any changes to
this code since 2.59e in Autoconf, so I assume the current code (in 2.60
as well as CVS) to still have this issue.
