My apologies - I should have checked first. It looks like not all the
latest build scripts work on Cygwin. Part of the problem is the way that
paths are constructed. Another is that escript treats empty arguments
differently on Windows. I will file a bug.

You should drop the *.ez files in the server plugins/ directory.

I understand that you are now building successfully on Ubuntu. That
would have been my suggested workaround.
