The webrev script was developed by Sun developers for use on Solaris.
Use on Windows is unsupported.
You are not likely to find much support on this mailing list for
doing jdk development on windows, and especially not using
Microsoft "Windows Services for UNIX".
Sun engineers use Cygwin or MKS for creating a Unixoid
environment on Windows (but's it's still painful).
