A one-year-old bug report is recent by Autoconf standards.  We are
still worried about porting to systems that are a decade or more old.

It is quite a bit younger than the other systems I mentioned.  The
first mention that I see of it on is 2001-12-20.  By
contrast, SunOS 4.1.4's first mention is 1993-02-26, AIX 3.2.5's first
mention is 1993-02-17, and IRIX 5.3's first mention is 1994-01-16.
By the standards of these other systems, Cygwin 1.3.6-6 is indeed a
spring chicken.
