Tested the Ubuntu command lind to replace Cygwin as build system

Raphael Bircher-3
Hi all

Matthias mentioned the new Ubuntu command line system on Windows for  
building AOO on Windows. At the moment we use Cygwin for this. I invest  
some time in it, and found out, that this is not a solution. The problem,  
You can't start a windows program out of the Ubuntu command line. So you  
won't be able to start MSVC from the buildscript.

But the tool as it self is interesting. So it's not a waste of time to try  
it out. But in our case, it doesn't help.

Regards, Raphael

Sure you can... ;-)

But the main problem is, that the scripts think they are on Linux,
because they can't find Cygwin...

If we could fake Ubuntu bash under Windows to present itself as Cygwin
it could be a replacement. Nothing more, nothing less.
For Windows we should work on another solution for the future.
