Thank you, but I simply don't have the time or resources to distribute Cygwin sources, that's why I'll refrain from further package contributions; I'm afraid it'll cause you more (legal) trouble than it's worth.

I'll definitely look into the issue with --disable-cygwin, after all it's limited to few scenarios only, e.g. compiling C sources. After that, I was considering starting work on mscoree.dll replacement (coremul), I'm too lazy to type 'ilrun.exe app.exe' every time :)

This distribution technicality issue has gotten a little out of hand. We definitely appreciate the work that you've done on the pnet packages and I don't want you to get discouraged.

The reason why Cygwin is currently the default in pnet is that a bit of work is still needed to complete the --disable-cygwin mode. In particular, many of the functions in "pnet/support" need to be ported to non-Cygwin mode. There may also be a few things in "pnet/engine" that need updating too.

If someone with good Windows programming experience could address this issue for the next release, then we'll turn off Cygwin1.dll permanently and solve this problem once and for all. Treecc already uses --disable-cygwin by default, and there's no reason why pnet cannot also.
