Hmm ... On cygwin /bin/sh is actually ash and ash != bash. Have you the
actual ash version? Else you probably have to report this on Cygwin list.
Looks like a problem (bug?) in ash.

Still, I wonder why I do not have this problem (now). Try to update ash

Yodl is not needed if you build from tarball, because it includes man
pages and info files. I believe, yodl is needed if you build from CVS. The
problem is, how can configure know if it was tarball or CVS?

I build from src mounted off Unix where I do have yodl so I do not have
this problem.
