    Hi Yamile. Have a look at the top of the configure script - it will probably refer to /bin/sh which doesn't exist in cygwin. Try running it directly, sah 'bash ./configure'. You may also need to set the configure shell variable incase it refers to /bin/sh later in the script, or you could create a symlink in /bin. I recommend posting to the sdcc-users or sdcc-devel list if you have iterative problems like this.

    /bin/sh is in the package ash. Installing ash is simply a must,
    it's required by many scripts and programs.

    This isn't really a bug. Further discussions in sdcc-user.
