The patch is reverse of what you state.  w32api will only be found if
-mno-cygwin or -mwin32 are specified.  Are these switches available with
windres?  I didn't try it this way because I thought it best to use the
source headers instead of the installed headers.  However the patch was
initiated by the fact that cinstall couldn't find windows.h.
