I tried to run ./configure on the package crosstool-ng-1.24.0 under cygwin64
and it fails.

Here is the output:
   ./configure: This script requires a shell more modern than all
   ./configure: the shells that I found on your system.
   ./configure: Please tell and
   ./configure: about your system, including
   ./configure: any error possibly output before this message. Then
   ./configure: install a modern shell, or manually run the script
   ./configure: under such a shell if you do have one.

The shell is bash:
   $ echo $SHELL

Bash version:
   $ $SHELL --version
   GNU bash, Version 4.4.12(3)-release (x86_64-unknown-cygwin)

Is there anything I can do to solve the problem?
If I have to provide more information I'll gladly do.

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
