 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.

A related subject:
_Building the development version of Cygwin_

Note that minimally, the top-level source tree needs to contain:, config,, config.guess, config.sub, configure,, include, install-sh, libiberty, ltconfig,, missing,
move-if-change, newlib, symlink-tree, winsup, ylwrap.

Should IMO be _at least_ referenced from the FAQ - if not added to it.
