My Windows build has started failing like this when I try "sh validate"

Any ideas?


/usr/bin/install -c -m 755 -d "c:/code/HEAD/bindistprep/ghc-7.7.20130516/doc/html/libraries"
for i in libraries/dist-haddock/*; do \
                      /usr/bin/install -c -m 644  $i "c:/code/HEAD/bindistprep/ghc-7.7.20130516/doc/html/libraries/"; \
