I'm running the most up to date version of Cygwin in Windows 7 (64-bit). I can
confirm that install-sh does exist in the "/home/Jon Smith/cl/llvm/autoconf"
folder.  There's a bug with the configure script and white space character in
my Cygwin home directory ("Jon Smith").  I moved the llvm build folder to a
path that doesn't contain a space the error went away.

Configure should not fail if the path contains a white space in a folder name.
