Cygwin's chmod broken on Windows 8.1, breaks ``make world`` #6319
Original bug ID: 6319
There seems to be an issue with Cygwin's chmod 0600 on this OS. Accordingly, you may find it necessary to comment L367 of Makefile.nt to get the make world to succeed.
Since commenting that line works around the problem, it indicates that the chmod could be skipped with no ill effect. That might prove to be the easiest resolution.
Steps to reproduce
Build OCaml 4.01.0 from source on Windows 8.1 following "Native Win64 port built with Microsoft Windows SDK" instructions in the source distribution file README.win32. Will fail at linke L367 of Makefile.nt in the make world step.
