Comment (by hamish):

 is "C:\Program Files (x86)" common for 64bit Windows7 or a local install
 choice? Including $arch there is something new to me. Is  that $arch seen
 with Vista 64bit too?

 apparently so.

 that is the only place in the 6.4 code that uses _spawnl(), although
 lib/gis/system.c uses, and comments in g.parser speak of _spawnlp().

 one obvious thing is that in the non-osgeo4w install the `startup` string
 does is missing an executable name (which must end in .exe for _spawnl()
 too), it is just the dir. (but where is the closing "]" on that string
