Ah, but you did not. Windows Explorer says SRC is Src, but it really is
all capitals.

Well, you seem to be using the cygwin not mingw32 compiler. Try putting
/R/tools;/gcc-2.95.2/bin at the head of your path, and using 
make BUILD=MINGW32 pkg-acepack.  What you have done should I think work, but
the cygwin route can be very picky. I have seen the message you get,
and have never really understood why it want away, although I think it
was to do with a compiler upgrade.
