No, no, it compiles out of the box besides the patch because of the
#pragma problem.  The rest in the patch which makes it really large is
just the result from `autoreconf -f -i -v'.  The heros are the guys at
MySQL who wrote the stuff and the Cygwin developers and esp. the heros
who wrote all the threads code for Cygwin!

To make it into a Cygwin package, a little more work needs to be done:
1. Try to get it to compiled with the generic build-script out of the
   source tree.
2. Figure out how to install it as a service, write a setup-script to
   do it for Joe User.
3. Discuss which path layout to use.
4. ...
5. ...
6. ...
7. Volunteer to maintain it, MySQL is popular and there will be lots
   of questions at the list (there are already lots of question,
   though it is not included in the distribution).
