INSTALL.Windows wording suggests it's OK for cygwin to use /usr/bin/link.  Is this intentional?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-733
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-733
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Question
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 0.11
         Environment: Windows 7 with cygwin
            Reporter: Michael Maguire
            Priority: Minor


The file: 

http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/couchdb/trunk/INSTALL.Windows 

states:

47 	You must check that:
48 	
49 	* The `which link` command points to the Microsoft linker.
50 	
51 	* The `which cl` command points to the Microsoft compiler.
52 	
53 	If you do not do this, the ones found in `/usr/bin` may be used instead. 


This makes it sound as though which link and which cl *should* be the Microsoft ones, but
it's permissible to use the /usr/bin ones.

Is that the intent?

If not, can I suggest this says something more like:


53 	If you do not do this, the ones found in `/usr/bin` would be used instead, which won't
work properly.


P.S.:  I'm asking because I'm attempting to get the build going, and even though I've done
vcvars32.bat and 'which cl' is pointing to the Microsoft one, 'which link' is still pointing
to '/usr/bin/link' and I need to know if that's cool or not.
