Hi all,

I have compiled the CVS HEAD with the Cygwin Mingw cross-environment
(gcc -mno-cygwin).  I have had two problems:

- The cygpath issue.  The Makefiles have the necessary code to use the
  Cygwin cygpath utility, but it's commented out.  I appreciate that
  the situation is not very stable in that area, but could we consider
  a conditional and a configure item for this?  We do need that code
  as long as we want Emacs to support Cygwin at compile-time, but not
  at run-time, because without that code the Makefile will provide
  Cygwin paths to ELisp.

- Problem with _fmode (global MSC variable set to O_BINARY as the
  default file mode).  For a simple patch see below.  Strictly
  speaking I think the real problem is that this is not handled
  without the _fmode hack.  The code should just use its own global
  variable (or even more simply just add O_BINARY everywhere) instead
  of using this brittle compiler/runtime dependent solution.

so long, benny
