ok -- so I am feeling kinda lame.  I am certainly not new to progamming and 
cygwin but it has been a few years since I did an install.  Never had any 
problems un win2k but I am trying to install under winXP Pro w/SP2 and have 
the most basic of problems.  Install goes fine but when I try to use gcc to 
compile a chunk of C-code I get no joy.

the command line (using the windows command prompt) gcc -o test.exe test.c 
produce no errors and no output --none, nada.  I would expect that I would 
get a "test.exe" file at best and some kind of error message at worst but I 
get nothing.

the following "gcc -v -o test test.c" generates the follwing  -- with the 
temp file not being generated

I am wondering if there is a security issue at work with the new SP2 ?
