vfork problem in beta 17.1

Compilation fails due to problem reported by fork in beta 17.1 under NT 4.0.
I get similar errors when in bash, almost like my environment is not visible to any of the b17.1 executables.  If I start bash in the bin directory and then type "ls", I get a directory listing.  If I cd .., and then type "ls", I get an error reported by fork that it could not find the command.

Read further for a compilation example...  Any suggestions?

Machine:	IBM Personal Computer 350-P166
OS:		Windows NT 4.0, Build 1381; Service Pack 1a

I installed from the all_tar.gz

Source Code for hello.c example:
#include <stdio.h>
        printf( "Content-type: text/html\n\n" );
        printf( "<H1>Hello World!</H1>\n" );

Compilation Output:
C:\cygnus\apps>gcc hello.c
gcc: vfork: No such file or directory
