"set_gnuwin32.bat" fails to execute and gives the
following output:

"\Utilities\Bin\x86 was unexpected at this time."

I tracked this down to a long pre-existing PATH
environment variable. I don't know if it's too long
or malformed, or what.

Path=C:\Program Files\Microsoft DirectX 9.0 SDK (June
2005)
