I tried building perl on a completely vanilla full install of Cygwin
on WinME with no other application running.  I'm still getting the
same error as before [sync_with_child] as soon as it starts the
testing phase.  Gerrit, I think I'm at my wits end.  Nothing at all
(blank) is being displayed in DrMingw when it crashes.  Oh, BTW,
perl-5.8 recognizes db3.1 as a valid db to build the db module
against (FYI).  I spoke with Chuck the other day and he thinks it is
*wrong* for perl to *require* rebasing.  I completely agree, as perl
is required for core functionality.  Perhaps we should get Jakko or
Larry in on this discussion?
