Here CMake is running gcc's platform identification shell script.
The cygwin shell does not like windows-style newlines (CRLF==\r\n).
Somehow that config.guess file ended up with windows newlines.

How did you obtain the source?

What does cygwin's "mount" tool report for its location
(textmode or binmode)?
