Did you use the ./prepare script first if building from Hg (Mercurial) 
rather than a tarball?

If so, did you use setup.exe since to remove/upgrade autoconf, automake, 
or related packages? That might have invalidated symlinks.

Also be sure not to mix MinGW and Cygwin utilities - this is a constant 
source of confusion.
