Hi,
this patch fixes the "permission denied error for cygwin when inplace
editing". It provides an internal backup extension, if the -i option is set
without a backup extension, so this may be more a pracmatical workaround as
a real bug fix, but it works and costs only 1 hour instead an "ideal" fix
would cost about 5-8 hours. So this is very economical.  :-)

Hmmh, I have done the foolowing like described in the INSTALL file and it
works for 99%

        rm -f config.sh Policy.sh
        sh Configure -de
        make
        make test
        make install

The "make install" fails with an "install is up to date" error I don't know
why so I have choosed "make install-silent" or "install-verbose" and it
goes.

After that I have tried preparing a kde package from cvs for configureing
and it worked (except another bug in make (.PHONY:cvs need in
admin/Makefile.common ), but this will be fixed next.

One question: Can anyone verify this patch ?

Second question: When this fix is okay, can someone tell me when an updated
perl package will be available on cygwin ? I'm asking because we like to
open the kde2 cvs archive in the next time and for that we need an updated
perl.

Regards Ralf
