I'm not sure where the "Z:." at the end of my Windows path is 
coming from... I'm still looking for that.  Meanwhile, I tried just
setting a short path directly, but it didn't help.

$ pwd

$ PATH='/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin'

$ echo $PATH

$ which gcc

$ type gcc
gcc is hashed (/usr/bin/gcc)

$ gcc
bash: /usr/bin/gcc: No such file or directory

$ i686-pc-cygwin-gcc
bash: /usr/bin/i686-pc-cygwin-gcc: No such file or directory

$ i686-pc-cygwin-gcc-3.4.4
i686-pc-cygwin-gcc-3.4.4: no input files

$ ls -ltar /usr/bin/*gcc*
-rwxrwxrwx  1 swootton Users 16183 Jun  7 16:13 /usr/bin/gccbug
-rwxrwxrwx  1 swootton Users 93717 Jun  7 17:02 /usr/bin/gcc.exe
-rwxrwxrwx  1 swootton Users 93717 Dec  5 16:25 
lrwxrwxrwx  1 swootton Users     7 Dec  5 16:25 /usr/bin/i686-pc-cygwin-gcc.exe
-> gcc.exe

I still don't get it.  I must be missing something obvious.
