Just to be clear, the utils Kai is talking about are the non-Cygwin
utils from the cygwin utils dir (cygcheck, strace).  This isn't
different from the 32 bit Cygwin native utils, which now require the 32
bit mingw64 compiler to get a simpler build process.  Since you were
gone for so long you probably didn't notice that we have switched our
w32api to the Mingw-w64 headers and libs, so the 32 and 64 bit Cygwin
can be built using the same set of w32api files.
