Jim's Windows7 issues solved!?

Jim Jagielski
I think I finally tracked down the problem w/ my Win7/cygwin
build problems. It was subtle.

I kept all my sources in

   /home/jim/src/asf/AOO415

that is, it lived under the cygwin file-system.

What I discovered is that the source actually
needs to live under C:, e.g.:

   C:/jim/src/asf/AOO415

which I can get to, under cygwin as

   /cygdrive/c/jim/src/asf/AOO415

If things like SRC_ROOT look like C:/cygwin/home/...
instead of C:/source/... then things will go wonky

Do we need an update to the instructions to clarify that?

I've never built on Windows. However, I've heard (read) a lot about
obstacles especially with Cygwin. So, I think it would help to reduce
the gray areas.

Yeah, I'll update the build instructions as needed.

I thought it was documented, but maybe with not enough emphasis.  I've
tripped over it myself and discovered the fix by reading the
documentation more closely.

If at least two people have missed it, it needs more emphasis.
