I have not tried to compile MCSim under Cygwin, but have successfully
compiled and used it under MinGW, using the tools for compiling R and R
packages called Rtools.  I submitted a patch to Frederic which he has
made available at the MCSim web page. Only statically-linked executables
are produced, but I question the advantage of using dlls for the mcsim
library, as it is small, and I understand there is a small performance
hit of using a dll over a statically-linked library (but my
understanding in these matters is small, and I'm quite open to being
wrong on this).

I've used MCSim in the past on XP; most everything seemed to work except
that I had to use makemcsims instead of makemcsim.  I may have had to do
a few workarounds to get it to build, but it's been a few years, so I

I then moved to Linux (Ubuntu), and everything seemed to work much more

Now I need to use MCSim in an XP and cygwin environment again, and I
haven't had success in building it yet (to be honest, I haven't even had
time to try in about a month).  I'll be watching what you and Frédéric
come up with; if I dig up stuff that has worked for me and is different
than what you found, I'll post it (sometime next week at the earliest).
