It looks like the start_of_text function is only used on AIX and

Thanks.  Should I go ahead with this change then?

I am afraid, but since I am not an Emacs developer (or C guru...), I do not understand completely the logic of the code in ecrt0.c, so I can take the responsibility to say 'GO'. What I can say is that Emacs bootstrapped in that way is still running.


Since 'start_of_text' is not used by Cygwin build, shouldn't 'ecrt0.c'
be completely unnecessary?

That's exactly the reason for this discussion: getting rid of ecrt0.c.
