That is why I was specifying that I am running from cygwin shell - the openjdk build somehow chooses that batch script for you, and it would be nice to be able to choose with a configure option.

Does it have to be Cygwin though?

On Windows I usually install the "git bash for Windows" package or whatever
it's called and it gives me a nice bash command prompt with a working git
and bash environment. You can then call the environment scripts from there.
