What you need is compare the values of pure-bytes-used in "emacs -Q"

(Make sure both builds use the same configuration options and are done
on platforms with the same size of basic data types and of EMACS_INT,
which probably means a 32-bit Unix or GNU system.)  Then subtract
these two values and round up.

Another alternative is to run "temacs -batch -l loadup" under GDB, set
a breakpoint in pure_alloc, and record every allocation that comes
from Cygwin-specific code; summing them up should give you the extra.
But this is much more tedious, as you'd have to examine lots of

Thanks. I'll try this when I get a chance. I'll probably use the tedious method, because I'd like to know why Cygwin seems to require more pure storage than other systems. There might be some old Cygwin-specific code that needs to be cleaned up.
