Thanks Keith,

It turned out that it was referring to #!/bin/bash but a "which bash" doesn't come up with anything.  I changed it to #!/bin/sh and it now works.

Presumably it is a shell script?  Does it have a shebang on its first
line?  (i.e. does the first line start with `#! /bin/sh', (without the
quotes, and the `#!' in columns 1-2))?  It needs that to make MSYS view
it as executable, since it lacks a qualifying file name extension.
