Re: 1.5.11: execvp bug (XP)
As stated in my original post, I renamed make.exe to gmake.exe to avoid
a name conflict with Opus make (also named make.exe). So,
gmake.exe==Cygwin make.exe. My environment is somewhat customized
because I have a lot of different build requirements depending on the
project I am working on.
Renaming gmake back to make gives the same result.
make: execvp: perl: Permission denied
make: *** [default] Error 127

You may also need to "rm /usr/bin/perl.exe" before you can "ln -s
<http://cygwin.com/cgi-bin2/package-grep.cgi?grep=bin%2Fgmake>, there is
no "gmake" in the Cygwin distribution. Is "gmake" a Windows executable,
by any chance? If so, the behavior is expected -- Windows programs don't
understand Cygwin symlinks.
Why not use Cygwin make?
