Some of the cygwin snapshots, begining with the Jan. 23 version, gave me this
problem with not recognizing //d, requiring either d: or not working at all
with drive designation, however the Mar. 8 snapshot has cured this.  Its main
annoying feature is the continual warning about losing track of a job numbered
something like 2^31.  The last 2 snapshots refused to run tar, so I backed
them out.  For the time being, I've also backed out my installation of
make-3.77, as the Mar. 8 snapshot seems to do OK with its own version of make.

I tried copying egcs testsuite to drive C: on my NT box today (standard
cygwin-b20.1) and it does sometimes see successful executions not seen when
reading from //d.
