Cygwin produces .la files with CRLF

Recently, my builds, which use Cygwin to compile some projects, start to fail because of a strange error: line xx: $'\r': command not found
For example:

Then I noticed that Cygwin has just released v3.0.0 so I assumed it's a bug in Cygwin and tried to do some debugging. However, I found out that my build script (with some modifications to remove deploy-related logic) can be run on my local machine without errors. And what's even more strange is that if I RDP into the build server and run the build script,compilation succeeds as well.

Could you please help to look into this? Thanks.

    It looks like all your previous "successful" builds exit at this part of the build script.
    Is that also the case when you RDP and run locally?

    No, the whole compilation is run when I was testing. It's easy to distinguish because of the massive output of make. Actually that piece of code is used avoid unnecessary compilation when sources and the build environment hasn't changed. There are quite some builds that didn't exit there (for example, and they are quite conspicuous in the history page because they take much more time to complete.

    Can you simply try a build without downloading new cygwin and instead using the one that is already installed on the build image and let us know if that builds successfully,

    Seems that it's fixed with the release of Cygwin 3.0.1
