The contents of the base file are passed as an argument to
compare_output().  Check out the regression test script.

As Eli points out, this should not be necessary.  In fact, it might even
cause problems on systems using apps compiled in different ways.  I
agree with his assessment: we just have to make the requirement that all
the tools you're using are of the same type: either all Cygwin-compiled,
or all not Cygwin compiled (since Cygwin seems to be doing things
differently than everyone else in this respect).
