I am running in to issues compiling cedet with my Cygwin shell.  This is
because my path names have spaces and the makefile doesn't allow for it.
My Emacs is a native Windows Emacs.  


Here is an annotated log.

make fails because the path has spaces

Passing CURDIR with "~" explicitly set gets me past the above hurdle and
from the looks of it compilation seems to be proceeding just fine.

I find no semantic.elc - file from which `semantic-mode' comes from -
in my build path.  I have a mixed feeling about how good the
compilation went.

$ find . -name 'semantic.elc'
