screen works with cygwin 1.7.0, which is faster and more stable than
cygwin 1.5.  Yes, cygwin 1.7 is still in beta, but only for a couple weeks
more.  I HIGHLY recommend that you upgrade - you are fighting more bugs
than you realize.

This has already been fixed for the upcoming autoconf 2.64.  The use of a
raw carriage return in a script is not portable, so newer autoconf no
longer does that (instead it uses tr to generate one on the fly).

Only the super-old version of cygwin bash that you are using.  Again, this
does NOT choke the current cygwin release of bash.
