So, what happened?  I was obviously not paying attention a month ago.
Basically, my story went like this.   Someone at Kitware got a new
dual dual core windows box.   nmake is not able to do parallel builds,
and the IDE builds do not do a great job of it.   So, I asked him to try
gmake from cygwin with the windows cmake.   It failed.  I sort of scratched
my head, because I knew I had tested this on my machine a month ago.  I even
made some fixes for the cmake 2.4.1 release to support gmake from cygwin.  I 
found the difference was the version of gmake from cygwin.   And the rest,
you are all too aware of.  :) 

BTW, gmake -j8 on the machine really rocks.  It beats the MS IDE by a few 
on a large project.
