Naa, that doesn't seem too work.
Anyway, started a discussion on the libtool mailing list.
Result is "too difficult - not planned".
So, cannot see anything we can do from the OC side.
a) Install Cygwin in it's own directory directly under a
windows partion eg. C.\cygwin
Under this there will be a "home" directory.
Create the (no included spaces!) user under "home".
(This is how I always have done Cygwin/user installs)
b) Use the Cygwin mount facility to map the directories.
Install using the mapped drives.
