I haven't been able to properly install bedtools with Cygwin (Win 7), base off of the native instructions. I searched online and found that it might be usefull to reinstall Cygwin with a few extra packages. I've done so and re-attempted make clean, and then make, but no cigar. I re-run make > SaveOutputToFile.txt File content is attached.

How could I fix this?

Questions about Cygwin install issues come up from time to time, but most remain unanswered, because there aren't many people doing bioinformatics with Cygwin. My advice is you should try something else, such as a virtual machine or install Linux alongside Windows.

Thanks, will consider, but this is what I have to work with currently. Still hoping someone encountered and troubleshooted through this problem.
