Thanks for considering Cygwin support for the next release.

The first (and last) grub package released in the Cygwin distribution was based on grub codebase from 2008-03-26. My latest reasonably tested merge is ~2 month old. If desired, I can merge & test all remaining changes to current HEAD and post the patches for review soon.

I'm sorry, I forgot that story.  It may be a more radical change than I
expected.  Anyway, let's see what remains to be done.

Meantime, I merged the Cygwin version to HEAD. First tests were successful.

LZMA works and is a real benefit. Core.img size was critical due to the large ntfs.mod. With LZMA, there is enough space for ntfscomp.mod and even more.

I posted the 3 remaining patches today, see:
[PATCH] grub-probe -t prefix, fix update-grub_lib for Cygwin
[PATCH] Kernel fixes for Cygwin
[PATCH] Build fixes for Cygwin

With these patches, Grub compiles & works out-of-the-box on Cygwin.

If there are no complaints, I will commit these in a week or so.
