I might have gone a little overboard porting pretty much all the tools
besides the mingw specific ones (only missing cygcheck and strace atm
will see if i can adjust the makefile to accept the same vars as in
msyscore) else i got pretty much all the cygwin tools from the 1.7
package. The mount system is rather different from the old one so i
added some default mount points for the /usr dir to make the old tools
work untill i can upgrade them so far it seem's to work just fine.
One weird bugger i ran into is even after changing every environment
variable to report MSYS if MSYSTEM=MSYS it still reports MINGW hmm one
to track down later.
And sorry to hear you got the flu :/ Best Wishes for quick recovery
