Two possible directions:

First, I'm told that Cygwin has been replaced with native code
that runs directly in Windows which, of course, would require
that you redo your whole environment and seems a bit extreme.

Second, I believe that rpc is used for the graphics but I'm not
certain yet. If you have changes you'd like to propose the best
current path to follow would be to:

(1) modify the .pamphlet files with changes to the code and some
paragraphs explaining what you changed and why.

(2) surround any changes you make in C code with some flag like
-DCYGWIN or -DBXP (Bill X Page). Note that I used -DTPD to mark
some of my changes so I could revisit them later. Add the new
-DBXP flag on the gcc lines of the stanzas that compile the
changed files. Make a note of it in the Makefile.pamphlet file.

(3) create a patch file that can be applied to the original 
.pamphlet file and send me the patches. try to make sure that
a patch implements only one "conceptual" change at a time. 
That is, it might affect several files but only changes one
function, like rpc functionality. I've been making changes also
so I'm going to have to carefully merge your patches with my
changed files.

In general, focus on getting the image built and runnable.
We'll do detailed debugging as we have time.

I'm using redhat 7.2 (gcc 2.95), 7.2 (gcc 2.96) and 8.0 (gcc 3.1)
Send me a patch for the compile flags change you'd like.

I should have the bootsys layer ready to upload shortly.
Once we get out of the C code and into a running lisp life
should be much easier.
