However, I think the patch needs to be changed in this part:

This change will break the DJGPP port because DJGPP also defines
__unix__, but still uses the DOS/Windows conventions like `;' being
the path separator.  So please use something more specific to the
Cygwin build (isn't there some __CYGWIN__ symbol, for example?).
