Hang on, I think I know what's happening.  At configure time, we use
the UNIX find command to pull up a list of source files for generating
documentation.  But Windows has a FIND command of its own with different
syntax.  I bet you haven't installed the UNIX find in cygwin, or the
Windows one is earlier on your PATH.

It's not the best approach to do this at configure time, but it's never
really caused problems before.
