Go back and read his question. He's running on Windows. Why did he even
think a SuSE list would have the answer to the question? In this case,
there does happen to be considerable overlap, but in general there's a

environment. Should we be entertaining all such questions just because
the Gnu tools happen to run on both SuSE and Cygwin?
