So you didn't follow the instructions on the Getting Started page as
they don't mention moving files ;-))

To be clear: It's a pretty valid approach to use CC65_HOME to adjust
for moved binaries. It's just that we're trying to sort things out
here. And in that phase it's better to stick to the rules - and
customize later when things have worked at least once...

This is by no means normal or expected but rather a sign for things
being strange at your end.

When you build cc65 from the sources inside Cyginwin for use inside
Cygwin according to the instructions then there's no way how a "C:/"
could come into play. After all cc65 is primary a *IX tool...

Just to be sure I just finished an install on an Win7 64 bit that had
never seen cc65 before using the prebuilt binaries variant. Apart from
the fact that I had to run the comd prompt as administrator to avoid
"Cannot create temporary file: Permission denied" everything went
absolutely smooth. No probs whatsoever to build a hello world.

the string "unsubscribe cc65" in the body(!) of the mail.
