This complicates things somewhat; there would be *three* 
separate behaviors:

default: include /usr/include/mingw, but don't #define WIN32
  and friends.

-mwin32 (& -mno-cygwin): include /usr/include/mingw, and 
  #define WIN32 and friends.

-mno-win32: don't include /usr/include/mingw, and don't 
  #define WIN32.

BUT, these three behaviors make sense to me, given the 
experiences we've had with gcc-2.95.2-7 ... -9.
