Looks like the MySQL server is not doable due to the way Cygwin threads
are implemented, according to the authors.. Only 3 packages then.

Few additional comments to Kaj's excellent message.
Kaj is right on all accounts. And yes, our client has been ported with
Cygwin, and is a part of every Win32 distro, under the name of
Our GUI client, mysqlgui is built on Win32 only with CygWin.
Regarding a server, as CygWin does not support properly threads on
Win32, it is not doable. This is not important, as VC++, which we use
for building MySQL for Win32, still makes 10% faster code then latest
