Thanks for the quick reply, Gabriel.

I think the main issue seems to be that for some reason, I am not able to issue a command to run the Cilly executable from within the Python script. In prior versions, I was able to run the cilly.bat script. It could just be a problem with the Python script itself -- I will investigate further. Chances are that I may just have to write a replacement batch script for my own purposes.

cilly.bat has indeed disappeared, but I have tested on cygwin the new pattern
and it works fine. There is now no difference between Linux and Cygwin in fact:
you have cilly.byte and cilly.native (resp. bytecode and native executables) as
well as the perl cilly wrapper. All of them are installed into bin/ when you run
"make", and into "%prefix/bin" (with %prefix=/usr/local by default) when you run
"make install".

Let me know if this helps.
