Well, bash is probably the problem. FPC doesn't provide bash, so somehow
unix utilities from some other set were used (cygwin,mingw) and they
complain that they don't run in their own environment.

To test this, sanitize your PATH so that only Windows and FPC related dirs
are in the PATH and try again.
