Problem with relative path containing nonexisting directory

I'm having problems compiling EGLIBC in Cygwin. I think the reason is
the following:

Doing "ls foobar/../" in a Cygwin terminal, where the directory
"foobar" does _not_ exist, still returns a valid file listing of the
current path.

Doing the same operation in Fedora, ls will print "No such file or directory".

Is this a bug in Cygwin ? Is there a configure option to enable the
Fedora-behaviour ?

Please CC me as I'm not a subscriber to the list.
