You are correct, sir.  Nice catch!

Your test script has hung several times, but the RTEMS builds are cranking
along nicely (two efi332 builds so far, attempting all the m68k bsps now).

If I have time today (and I'm not really wanting to work late), I'll try
blowing away my Cygwin installation and starting over fresh, just to verify
that the new bash.exe fixes the build_alias problem.  I should also be able
to do the same experiment on my home machine tonight.
