Re: [PATCH] Fix cygwin gawk wierdness in

Ok, its really wierd.  Yes, it has only just appeared in the GCC
bootstrap since we've changed to working with multiple files.
The failure more is the missing fbuiltin- entry from c.opt. c.opt works. f/lang.opt c.opt works java/lang.opt c.opt works f/lang.opt java/lang.opt c.opt doesn't.

Hence the switch to processing multiple files has triggered the
problem.  However, it appears to have just been latent, I've
managed to produce a single input file that also demonstrates the
problem (or a closely related issue?).

I've just tried, and unfortunately, it doesn't help.

As you're the original author of, and "de facto" maintainer,
I'll take that as sufficient approval and check the change in.

Many thanks.
