Upgrading to the Latest getmail on Cygwin

I've been trying to get a backup of GMail working on my Windows PC using getmail on Cygwin.  I've run across a couple of problems so I decided to upgrade to the latest version of getmail.  The default install of getmail on cygwin was  4.36.0.  Latest version from the developer was 4.39.1.

Installed a new version like this:

  1. mkdir newgetmail
  2. cd newgetmail
  3. wget
  4.  tar xvf getmail-4.39.1.tar.gz
  5. cd getmail-4.39.1
  6. python install
