Follow-up Comment #3:

I've fixed this for now by making cygwin be W32.  I agree that the whole
$port_type thing is overloaded.  It should be replaced by a hash, like
%FEATURES, where each key is some feature that can be enabled/disabled: 8.3
filenames, case insensitive filenames, and symbolic link support are a few
that pop immediately to mind.  Then this hash can be constructed properly by
the harness based on the host type or whatever other criteria we like.

In fact the entire test suite, as has been mentioned, is in need of a
comprehensive update and cleanup.  If anyone is interested in undertaking
this please contact me to discuss the details: I have definite requirements
for any enhancement.
