Weird!   cat -v testsuite.dir/022/sets shows that this file contains double 
^M's at the end of each line.  And, of course, your diff -u script outputs both 

But there's a Cygwin installation option to use either a DOS or Unix default 
text file type.  I had originally select DOS since it makes it easier to port 
files between Cygwin and Windows NT (and, of course, it's easy to ignore 
spurious \r's in one's Flex token rules).  When I reinstall Cygwin with the 
Unix default text file type, the Bison install works perfectly.

So, I'm guessing that my original Bison install (with the DOS default test file 
type) was actually OK, and that the only problem was with the make check tests. 
 Sounds correct?

(And let me know if you'd like me to test anything else for you...)
