Actually, this is the answer to the opposite question.  The answer to that
is as the FAQ states.  Using Cygwin .a's with VC++ isn't as easy, since 
they are going to pull in 'cygwin1.dll' and this cannot currently be 
initialized properly by non-cygwin programs.  Of course, this subject
has also be discussed in the email archives.  If interested, Alastair
Growcott suggested a "workaround".  If you're interested in it, see
<>.  I'd 
recommend directing questions about this to him, though it's worthwhile
to cc the list for posterity. :-)
