I have the sh-utils-2.0.15-4 package installed (I assume you're at least
as current).  But I don't have cygwin installed on Win98 (just a few
Windows2000's).  My $CYGWIN variable isn't set globally - in my
/etc/profile, I have set it to codepage:oem (couldn't really see why I
would want to bother with binmode - though occasionally it's annoying
to have ^M's on logfiles).
