comment scons can't find glib-2.0 >= 2.32 on cygwin
Well, I think it's a little early to throw in the towel. I use cygwin day-to-day, both at work and at home, transparently, with my Linux VMs. Cygwin is a full posix environment and there are quite a number of utilities and packages that run on it. I would feel pretty sure that many of them make stat calls.The only packages you mention that I couldn't find here cygwin.com/packages/package_list.html were elfutils and fts. There is a python-sphinx, but it's 1.2.3. So while maybe not possible atm, it's probably more possible than you imagine : )

comment scons can't find glib-2.0 >= 2.32 on cygwin
Hey, thanks for chiming in! : ) Would you care to comment on the technical details of why it probably won't work? I just assumed it was a problem with cygwin placing glib, not scons or your package.

@richard Yes, I am trying to figure out how to verify that it actually is installed, as the cygwin setup seems to claim, and then point scons to its location.

$ rename --version \ rename from util-linux 2.25.2 on cygwin, will see if it's available in packages.

comment xargs can't handle spaces in lines
That could be, but I tried a number of things with the same error set (Can't delete files), so I'm not sure which one was the first to get it right.

I mis-diagnosed the problem I was experiencing and all the answers are superfluous.
