Has anyone got this working with php under Windows? I'd love to know how!

I'm trying to put together a webserver/database/php solution that will work on my WinXP
laptop for demos/prototypes. I don't have admin access on this machine, i.e. no registry
access  - I can't even copy php.ini to c:\windows!

Cygwin installs OK to c:\cygwin and I've succesfully got apache and postgresql running
under cygwin. But I'm stuck with php.

I've investigated lighttpd, and it looks very promising. The fast-cgi module looks great
- the spawn-fcgi utility built on cygwin straight out of the box, but I still come back
to not having a version of PHP that works.

I downloaded the 4.3.8 windows zip file and extracted it into c:\php but I can't work
out how to integrate this binary with the cygwin tools, if indeed it is possible.

Has anyone got any suggestions that might help me out here?

Is there any more news about the cygwin php port?
