why must cygwin be first in path?

Only a short hint:
I have no problem with this and I don't have cygwin first in path.
In my NT environment, $PATH looks like
PATH=%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%; ... ;D:\my\cygwin\bin
so all Windows tools are found earlier than the cygwin binaries.
When I'm starting a cygwin tool, I always use a shell or a shell
script that does whatever should be done:
D:\my\cygwin\bin\sh whatever_should be_done.sh
This shell script begins with s.th. like that:
Now all cygwin tools are found first.
If you are using the shell interactive, you can use /etc/profile
to set the path in this way.
Hope, this helps,
