  add_replacement "###JTREG_HOME###" "`cygpath -am $JT_HOME`"

seems to be the culprit.

JT_HOME is empty, and I never did set that before (I usually work on
Linux though).

I think the problem is that in this expression:

   if [ "x$CYGPATH" = "x" ]; then
   ..
   else
   ..
   fi

the non-windows path does not require the variables to be set. Whereas
calling "cygpath -am" without an argument is an error which leads to
the usage output.
