Here's something that puzzles me.
The standard GREP (2-5-1 from the distribution, as of aug 02) does not like
CRLF endings on text files.
I'm running an all binary installation (binmode, no text mounts) on w2k.
The problem is, grep will not match empty lines as in
grep -v "^$"
which will break configure on cl.exe output.
The funny thing is, I compiled grep from the (cygwin-setup) sources myself,
and the problem went away.
What are the configure options used to build the distro grep ?
While I'm on the line, is there a list of the configure
options/prerequisites used to build any binary from the distribution ?
