Hi Marco;

  Thanks for your reply.

  I guess I will somehow modify my PATH so that I have
/cygdrive/c/cygwin64/usr/bin and /cygdrive/c/cygwin32/usr/bin
(although I don't think that will work exactly like that).  Some fstab
magic?  Some symlink magic?

  I will continue experimenting.

Thanks,
Ken Wolcott
