Hi Behdad, I tried to build 0.10.7 on WinXP with the latest cygwin. How do I
get more details on why tests are failing? Configure and make went fine...
make: Entering directory `/cygdrive/c/DOCUMENTS/MARTIN/Tasc/Arabic/fribidi-0.
1 of 1 tests failed
Please report to http://fribidi.org/bug
make: *** [check-TESTS] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/cygdrive/c/DOCUMENTS/MARTIN/Tasc/Arabic/fribidi-0.1
make: *** [check-am] Error 2

In fact this is a known issue. The tests fail because of newline issues.
Latest diffutils accepts --strip-trailing-cr, but not earlier versions, so I'm
not quite sure how to fix this.
To see what's going on, try running make test instead of make check. What
happens is that they both run the script runtests.sh, so you can get into the
script yourself. If your diff doesn't accept --strip-trailing-cr, try passing
-w to ignore whitespace.
Let me know if you have any suggestion for a fix.
I was not able to reproduce this problem.
I had the problem under MinGW but Cygwin was not affected during my tests.
