Thanks for the info regarding the clean. Unfortunately using the *nix copy command makes no difference to the result.

Here are the steps that I took once again just in case I did something incorrectly:

- Using my Windows Git Shell I ran 'git clone' whilst at directory X (not in the same tree as the Windows build scripts).
- Using Cygwin64 Terminal (as Administrator) I ran 'mkdir override'
- 'cd override'
- 'cp -a X .'
- 'cd openslide'
- 'autoreconf -i'
- 'cd ../..'
- './ -m64 clean openslide'
- and finally './ -m64 bdist'

I have attached the 'config.log' file in case someone can make sense of it.

Thanks again for any light you can shed on this problem.

This error doesn't make sense to me.  I wonder whether there are additional issues with the Windows directory copy, other than the permissions problem.  Could you try deleting the override/openslide directory and recopying it using Cygwin "cp -a"?

FYI, you can also delete a single build with e.g. "./ -m64 clean openslide".
