Hi all,

I'm trying to install IO::Pty under Cygwin, since Windows doesn't support ptys but it's doable with Cygwin. Seems to go okay, but the installation for IO::Tty (a prereq) gets stuck trying to open /dev/ttyN (N has ranged from 0-3 so far):

Is there something else I need to install to do this?? Something Cygwin related? I'm at a loss as to why this won't install.
