1) It's not improperly disabled. Cygwin's getcwd does not behave the way
bash wants it to (when called with 0 buffer and 0 buffer length, it
fails, instead of allocating buffer). At least that is my understanding
after observing the source code.

2) Also, this happens if you cross-compile bash (because this can't be
autodetected when cross-compiling, and configure assumes the worst).
