NMAKE : faral error U1077: 'c:\cygwin\bin\bash.EXE' : return code '0x7f'

I could avoid this error message by commenting out all command lines with the textify command in the Makefile.nmake file. I think this is quite acceptable, for a quick solution. Because it's a matter of readme, help, ... -files. But anyway, this is a problem which should be avoided. Any ideas?

You need to install an additional component of Cygwin, the Utils/dos2unix package. Run the Cygwin setup.exe and find the package using the search box and then install it.
