|  o From the cygwin specific README:
| Build instructions:
|   unpack sgrep-1.92.1-1-src.tar.bz2
|     if you use setup to install this src package, it will be
|          unpacked under /usr/src automatically
|   cd /usr/src
|   ./cygbuild*.sh all
| But the build script is sgrep-1.92.1-1.sh

|  o The packaging list claims that the sample sgreprc file is located under
|  /etc/defaults/etc/sample.sgreprc
| but it actually is under
|  /etc/defaults/sgreprc
| Is this the right location anyway ? and shouldn't it get copied to
| /usr/share in a postinstall script ?
|  o The man page says that sgreprc would be searched under /usr/lib/sgreprc
| Can we patch this to /usr/share

I'm confused about the use of different directories. I'll ask about
this more in separate topic.

|  o There is still an error in the build script:
| When I run bash ./sgrep*sh -v all I get
| -- cygbuild.sh 2004-01-26 1.230 http://cygbuild.sourceforge.net/
| -- Wait, examining environment and preparing variables
| ./sgrep-1.92.1-1.sh: line 505: [: -eq: unary operator expected
| ./sgrep-1.92.1-1.sh: line 505: [: -eq: unary operator expected
| -- Extracting /tmp/sgrep/sgrep-1.92.1.tar.gz

Can you run it with debug and send me the results, since I can't
reproduce the bug:

    bash -x ./sgrep*sh -v all

(Just send all to me).

New package rolled to include those fixes:


  lynx -dump http://tierra.dyndns.org:81/cygwin/sgrep/get.sh | sh
