I did a "make distribution" in order to check some miscellaneous items
(such as bug 729). The build broke with the following output:

make[2]: Entering directory '/cygdrive/c/abiBuild/abi/src/wp'
(cd /cygdrive/c/abiBuild/abi/user/wp/help; tar cf - ./*.*
[a-z][a-z]?[A-Z][A-Z]*/*.* [a-z][a-z]?[A-Z
][A-Z]*/*/*.*) | (cd
tar xf
(cd /cygdrive/c/abiBuild/abi/user/wp/sample; tar cf -

abiBuild/abi/src/WIN32_1.1.0_i386_OBJ/AbiSuite/AbiWord/sample; tar xf -)

p: No such file or d
make[1]: *** [canonical] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/cygdrive/c/abiBuild/abi/src'
make: *** [canonical] Error 2

Could this be another instance of the problems we were having a while ago
with the cygwin paths?

If we can fix this now, that would be great. It's one thing that will have
to be worked out some time before we can do another binary release.
