feisty meow is hosed for building with cygwin

Keywords: build, cygwin Cc:

Description

in the old days we built with msys, but that is no longer sufficient. windows is too huge a ball of puke to deal with unless you have a good tool suite, such as unix. cygwin provides that, including crucial things like svn and git, so we're moving to that.
however, stuff doesn't build yet with cygwin.
a major problem is when cygwin doesn't interpose to translate paths from cygwinese to windows. like /cygdrive/c/blah.
we've chosen to make all the feisty tools understand the retarded style of cygwin paths, but those changes are not complete yet.
get this finished so a full build works on winders.

this is mostly working now. remaining problems:

highest: makedep doesn't handle cygwin style paths yet.
so building without dependencies works, but not normal make.

next highest: bundlers are not working. final products not built.
