  You mean 'd2u'.

  Nik, did you use winzip or some similar windows gui to unpack the make
sources?  If you did, don't, they often 'helpfully' convert lineendings; use
the cygwin command-line "tar".

  The other possibility is that you've installed cygwin with dos-mode line
endings when you used setup.exe.  That can be switched back by rerunning

  If you need more help, come and post over on the cygwin mailing list and
we'll sort it out there.  See the list page for archive, (un)subscribe and
posting details.


Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
