Good to hear you got it working.  We'll need some specific details if
we are to fix all the scripts, though.

So, it may be that half installed versions give bad results?

Just curious, why by hand when setup.exe flags new versions and
handles the upgrades for you?

Ok, thanks.  This helps: I found an old bug (I'm sure I found it
before) in that script, this

    # Where we installed it

needs to be changed to

You found another bug, thanks.

The line


should read:

Is this really necessary, now that that bin directory is in the path?

Hmm, that's hairy.  Could you try to undo that change again, and then
try to fix it by setting environment variables, eg:

    export GS_LIB='c:\cygwin\usr\ ... '
    export GS_FONTPATH='c:\ ... '

(please fill in the dots)  That way, it could be automated.
The script /etc/profile.d/ makes an attempt at
pointing these variable to the LilyPond tree...

Again, if you find any contstructs that are not being converted by
convert-ly, please send a report.
