Re: configure error: cannot find install-sh or in ../.. "../../winsup/cygwin"/../..

Got around to trying some of this again. I commented out some #include
<winsock2.h>, but eventually one file didnt like it and had a bunch of
unknown variables. I was reading through the emails and I did want to
specify that at this point I'm just trying to compile and install
winsup from the CVS cygwin server. I havent gotten to openswan yet.
Not sure if that helps to look for the root of the issue.
