OK, thanks.

The biber integration doesn't work in Cygwin because of the .exe magic 
that Cygwin uses:

checking for a biber binary... bin/i386-cygwin/biber
make[3]: Entering directory `/tmp/tl2011/source/Work/utils/biber'
make[3]: *** No rule to make target `bin/i386-cygwin/biber', needed by 
`all-am'.  Stop.

The problem is that the biber binary is named biber.exe, but when 
configure tests for bin/i386-cygwin/biber/biber, the test succeeds 
because of the .exe magic.  So BIBER_BINARY is set to the non-existent 
file bin/i386-cygwin/biber.  The following fixes it for Cygwin (and I 
hope still does the right thing on other platforms):
