MSYS works without problems and is faster by 20 to 40 per cent for
compilation and configure, respectively -- so that would ideally be my
platform of choice. Unfortunately, I couldn't get bitbake (which
requires python with fcntl) to run under MSYS.

I see that cygpath conversion is already implemented for cygwin (for
MSVC?), but I don't see how to enable it (perhaps this is an autoconf
issue). So, I'd appreciate help with cygpath on cgywin (or bitbake on

With kind regards,
