Thanks. The use of __CYGWIN__ is clear and sound.
I've been thinking that there is a need for a __NOCYGWIN__ define too (to
be set when -mno-cygwin is used).
Any thoughts about this? Good(tm) or Bad(tm)?

Searching the archives, w google (I'm VERY negative vs "htdig" right now)
+"CYGWIN" +"-mno-cygwin" site:cygwin.com inurl:ml
gives 1450 hits...
I'm out of ideas on how to refine this - to find anything that matches
__NOCYGWIN__ or similar.
At times I'm VERY frustrated with search engines (e.g. google) for their
incapability to do what the help files indicate. Adding a "+" before a word,
as I have done above, is meant to REQUIRE that word to be in the items
shown. IMO this DOESN'T happen.
