That did the trick.
- making sure that the 'find.exe' in cygwin was found first
- using --prefix and setting it to a directory without spaces
I then did a 'make distclean', re-ran './configure --prefix=/home/calee'
and then 'make' and it built! I also ran 'make install' and then worked
Are there some tests I can run to certify that the build is OK?
Thanks so much, Olly, for the help.

OK, I'll at least note this issue, and have a think about eliminating
the need to use find.

If you're about to rerun configure, then this should restore the tree to
the state it was in when you unpacked the tarball:
If you just want to clean up compiled object files and the like but keep
the effects of configure then use:
