Subject AW: Why is cygwin needed to run mustella?

Ok ... so it's probably the git bash that's doing the magic.
I much more prefer that as I have to have GIT installed anyway in order to checkout the stuff

You can use anything that has a shell for it.  I use Git for windows currently instead of

Actually I was pretty surprized to see that I could execute the sh files on my Windows machine
without any need of Cygwin.
Well I would like to reduce the amount of dependencies needed to build flex. Currently it's
more difficult to setup than it needs to be.

Think I have my hands in way too much different parts here. So I guess I won't start refactoring
the SDKs build itself ... it was much more a simple question what else Cygwin is needed for.
What however I think might be worth investigating would be to have some sort of watchdog wrapper
around execution of Flash tests that kills the Flashplayer if a test doesn't return within
a given time.

There are other .sh files created and used by the main .sh files.  What would you convert
to, Ant?  If so, feel free to take that on.
