When a "make install" is done under cygwin, there are errors when temp file
names are changed to the actual names of the binaries.  I'm not sure if this
is a cygwin bug, or if it's an underlying problem with the windows mechanism
that cannot be worked around.  At any rate, using "/usr/bin/install -c" does
work.  Below is an idea of what I'm talking of:

Ok, will do.

You are correct, this was an extraneous header file, my apologies.  It
appears that depending on a define, either fcntl.h or sys/file.h are
included in system.h.  O_TEXT will be properly defined if either is
