    Change how we compute install paths on cygwin

    igfoo committed
    We used to have
        MK_INSTALL_DEST = "$(shell cygpath $1)"
    but this meant we ended up with
        "$(shell cygpath "[...]/html/`basename $$i`")"
    and the $(...) gets evaluated before the makefile rule, so the for loop
    hasn't been run, and so $i isn't defined. So we were taking the basename
    of the empty string, meaning docs weren't being installed in the right
    Now we have
        MK_INSTALL_DEST = $$(cygpath $1)
    so the evaluation happens in the shell, while the for loop is running.

  1. Add OSTYPE build-system variable, and use it committed
    The use is in, where we need to know when
    we're on Cygwin.
    This fixes the build on my Windows box, where I have
    both Msys and Cygwin.

    On Cygwin, use a Cygwin-style path for /bin/install's destination

    igfoo committed
    cygwin's /bin/install doesn't set file modes correctly if the
    destination path is a C: style path:
    $ /bin/install -c -m 644 foo /cygdrive/c/cygwin/home/ian/foo2
    $ /bin/install -c -m 644 foo c:/cygwin/home/ian/foo3
    $ ls -l foo*
    -rw-r--r-- 1 ian None 0 2011-01-06 18:28 foo
    -rw-r--r-- 1 ian None 0 2011-01-06 18:29 foo2
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 ian None 0 2011-01-06 18:29 foo3
    This causes problems for bindisttest/ which then
    thinks that e.g. the userguide HTML files are binaries.
    We therefore use a /cygdrive path if we are on cygwin

    Make installation on *nix work for paths with spaces in their name

    igfoo committed
    This means we can remove some conditional stuff from the Makefiles,
    and means the testsuite doesn't have to work out whether or not it's
    on Windows.
