Thanks a lot! I could reproduce everything on my windows 7 64bit
machine with cygwin 1.7.9

That's not clear to me, is that really necessary for a working system
o just to avoid the complains? "scripts/distinst -local -noexit
-allall cygwin-x86" seemed to work, except from the mentioned

Furthermore, I tried to run the "inst_sge" script but the
"dist/util/arch_variables" file is not yet adapted in the svn trunk
version. I will try to update that script and see what happens ...
