[ANNOUNCEMENT] cygwin-1.1.5-6, mingw-20001103-1, w32api-20001103-1, gcc-2.95-4

I've uploaded what I hope will be the final version of the Cygwin 1.1.5
DLL to  It includes below fixes which are new since
the original test version that I made available on 10/29 (time flies).

In this version, I've broken out the mingw and w32api stuff into their
own separate releases, which are downloadable as separate packages.
The w32api include files will now be installed in /usr/include/w32api.
I've modified gcc to look there also as long as you are not compiling
with -mno-win32.  The mingw libraries go to /usr/lib/mingw.  The new
version of gcc looks there first for mingw libraries when you specify

Hopefully, this will allow you to use -mno-cygwin without pulling in
cygwin's include files.  It is still possible to pull in libcygwin.a
though.  I guess I have to figure out how to prevent that eventually.

Please check this out and report to the cygwin list.
