I attempted to build the Cygwin DLL from CVS today and encountered 
permission denied errors from the install target in winsup/cygwin. The 
problem appears to be that directories are precreated using "install -m 
644". With 644 permissions, subsequent install calls to copy files to 
those directories fail.

The following patch fixed the problem for me.

ChangeLog for winsup/cygwin:

2005-10-13  David Rothenberger <daveroth@acm.org>

	* Makefile.in:  Create directories with 755 permissions.
