If you are using the tools from the cygwin CD, you may want to update to the
latest net release.

Normally these programs are not needed, unless you have patches to the or files.  If you need these tools, you can
download the source from or one of its mirrors.  IIRC you may
need to install perl for automake to work.  A version of perl is available

is obvious how to fix it, in other cases it takes a bit more work.  You will
have to use your own judgement on this.
