Hi Eric,

That was a "no" to your assertion.  All of the Cygwin tools I'm using are
precompiled from Cygwin.

I was thinking as an alternative to hard-coding the shell to "/bin/sh.exe",
I could modify make to look for "sh.exe" on the path if it does not exist in
/bin.  In fact I'll probably end up doing this one way or another...  Would
there be any interest in folding this change back into the release?  If so,
please let me know and I'll pass along diffs to 3.79.1 when I have them.
