cannot execute binary file

I'm attempting to install SciLab5.1.1 in a cygwin environment on a XP
system. I've gone through the Linux steps found here - <http://
www.scilab.org/download/>. The tar process goes along without
incident. When I try to run SciLab, I get this message - "cannot
execute binary file". I find it kind of perplexing that "configure"
and "make" are not part of the installation instructions. Does anyone
have any ideas?
