Sorry for my general brusqueness earlier -- I wrote that previous
email from my cellphone while waiting on queue somewhere...

Anyway - what I did before is extract your modifications to
/usr/bin/pass and instead define a brand new platform file called
cygwin.sh. So moving forward, all the cygwin-specific enhancements
will live in there. I should have written more clearly before. Then,
the new makefile is supposed to install that file to the right place
and modify /usr/bin/pass to work with it... However...

However, I'm an idiot and also coded the fix for the earlier problem
on my phone, SSHd into my laptop, and forgot to "git push". Try
downloading a zip now. The makefile shouldn't give you this error this

Thanks for helping port to cygwin! Really appreciate it. Sorry for the
hiccups so far.
