Brian, I hope that you *mean* cygpath and nothing else...

I've pointed out this several times.
Running setup from bash works exactly as expected (for me).
Running it like
$ cygstart /install/setup.exe --no-md5
is the fastest way *I* can use to reproduce the hang.

_Building the development version of Cygwin_
Note that minimally, the top-level source tree needs to contain:
Makefile.in, config, config-ml.in, config.guess, config.sub, configure,
configure.in, include, install-sh, libiberty, ltconfig, ltmain.sh, missing,
move-if-change, newlib, symlink-tree, winsup, ylwrap.
Should IMO be _at least_ referenced from the FAQ - if not added to it.
