John, I thought you said you weren't using cygwin to build brailleblaster, 
except for the liblouis* libs.
Does this mean that ant in cygwin will run outside cygwin on windows?
Just getting oriented. TIA

Check your Cygwin. It may already have ant. If not, you can add it with
the setup program.

My Cygwin has Subversion Mercurial, and just about every other
programming tool. The Cygwin command line is much nicer than the Window
