If dbf has already been copied to shp then Cygwin simply complains
that they are the same file.  Use the "-f" option to force an overwrite.

Hello list members,

Richard and me are currently testing some recent compilation
of 5.7 under Cygwin. A strange error occurs:

I'm a bit clueless since it should simply copy a file to a new filename:

tail -3 ~/grass57/db/drivers/dbf/Makefile
        $(CC) $(LDFLAGS) -o $@ $(ARCH_OBJS) $(LIBES) $(MATHLIB) $(XDRLIB)
        cp $(DRIVER) $(SHPDRIVER)

Any ideas?
