You're right, that's how I view it as well.

Could be worth a shot at least. Send it over to me and I'll do some digging

Please do. I consider this to be a cygwin problem, possibly due to bugs in
autoconf or automake somwehere. Feel free to CC your posting to me, should
you think it necessary or helping.
