Hi Ben

Thank you for pointing me to the issue with CRLF vs LF line terminators. This ended up being the issue. I had copy/pasted the text from the config.guess and config.sub from the ftp site and saved them using WordPad in Windows. Googling how to convert in cygwin, I converted the files to LF using
sed -i 's/\r//' config.sub
sed -i 's/\r//' config.guess
I thank you again for pointing me in the right direction. For completeness, here is the output you requested:

$ sh config.sub amd64

Thanks, again,

The CRLF terminators may be the problem for the Cygwin bash shell.
What if you type:

$ sh config.sub amd64

(for example?)

Cheers, Ben
