  Nothing really, although "making -mno-cygwin work" should be expanded to
include "and applying all the other cyg-specific patches", but basically,
that's all there is to it.

  Oh, and to find a good set of configure options, run "/bin/gcc -v", and
your original cygwin gcc will spit out a list of the options it was
configured with.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
