Here's the problem. If you look at tools/win32-setup.sh you'll see that it requires sed. Easily fixed by using cygwin's setup facility and installing sed. Also, for what it's worth, I came across a similar kind of problem recently in which I ultimately discovered that the problem was that I had recently installed WinARM (ARM processor tools for Windows) and because of where it was in the path, win-setup.sh was attempting to use the mkdir facility in that toolchain (which would seem to work but not actually create a directory!). I found that pretty quickly by using "which mkdir" at the Windows command line and then manually altering the path.
