I found an issue which I believe to be a bug, relating to line endings on Windows (like there hasn't been anything like this before). Some likely to be important details about the environment include:

OS: Windows XP
Script host: Cygwin (Bash 3.2.39(20))
Compiler toolchain: GCC 4.3.2 (unofficial mingw32 build as can be found at http://www.tdragon.net/recentgcc/).
Libtool version: 1.5.27a-1 (perhaps a Cygwin patched version?).
Autoconf version: 2.61


Hi Tom,

I smell a problem here, Cygwin isn't primarily for running native windows
applications, it's primarily for running Cygwin apps. Whenever you try to
cross that boundary, you inevitably end up with these warts. And I get the
feeling that your gcc is just such a native windows application, and not
a MinGW targeting cross compiler for the Cygwin host. I haven't double
checked that of course, but if that's indeed the case you might have more
luck with MSYS as the script host instead.
