Below H-i386-cygwin32 i have :

drwxr-xr-x 162 544      Aucun           0 Jun 18 11:30 bin/
drwxr-xr-x  35 544      Aucun           0 Aug 18 18:00 c/
drwxr-xr-x   7 544      Aucun           0 Aug 20 15:55 etc/
drwxr-xr-x   5 544      Aucun           0 Apr 22 21:47 i386-cygwin32/
drwxr-xr-x  18 544      Aucun           0 Apr 22 21:47 lib/
drwxr-xr-x   7 544      Aucun           0 Apr 22 21:47 libexec/

So, if i understand, I mount/copy/move bin/ to /usr/bin, etc/ to /usr/etc,
i386-cygwin32 to /usr/i386-cygwin32, lib/ to /usr/lib and libexec/ to
but what for i386-cygwin32/include and the include directory "up" to
H-i386-cygwin ?
wich one goes to /usr/include and which one to /usr/local/include ?

In the upper one i have subdirs X11 and g++, on a hpux box g++ goes down
/usr/local/lib and X11 down /usr/local/X11R5/include/ so I  suppose that i
/usr/local/include to d:\Cygnus\B19\include right ?

I should take a look at that old debian box in the cable room ;-)
