The FAQ has build instructions.  I recently removed the absolute
w32api-must-be-in-winsup requirement but there is still no guarantee
that the cygwin DLL will build without the latest w32api.

Dumper.exe is probably the only utility in winsup to have dependencies
outside of its directory.  It relies on binutils, too.
