Thanks; that fixed problem # 2. I suggest that the installation procedure
either remove that file itself or else at least warn about it.
I worked around problem # 1 by invoking "ln -s /bin/gcc-4 /bin/cc" and
the GNU-make installation procedure should test for existence of various
commands and set up a similar link. (Note also that some people expect
to also exist, since it is required for POSIX compliance.)
My Cygwin Bash environment now seems to function as well as it used to.
I appreciate the prompt response.
