RE: running tests under Cygwin

I typically just do:

$ make test

inside the build directory, and most of the tests work just fine. There's an issue with perl 5.8 where some of the tests don't run reliably, but in my customized version of the source (look on the downloads page for Cygwin Source) I've got a patch in place that fixes that problem.

Subject: running tests under Cygwin

I've configured and built the source for 7.10.5 following the instructions
in docs/INSTALL. I tried running the testsuite, but all the tests fail.

For just the first test, I get:

DByron_at_DByron /cygdrive/c/src/curl-7.10.5-cygwin-sh/tests
$ ./ -v 1

The attached files show some more information. stdout1 is empty. Do other
folks have this working? Is this expected to work?

Thanks much.
