My cywgin/mingw session last night has taught me a couple of things
(note, I have been quite ignorant of these systems so far):
Concurrent read/write file access seems impossible on this platform.
I've used one CVS checkout for both platforms to build off of, which
resulted in desaster.
- ln can segfault (probably because it does not handle locked files
nicely). I don't remember if it was cygwin's or mingw's ln, sorry.
- config.status can segfault as well (no further details).
- something is broken in the Makefile rules that causes regeneration
of toplevel aclocal.m4 during `make check', after
I suspect this is a timestamp resolution issue.
- cygwin/mingw experiences,
