Actually, the answer's _still_ no.
If you use -mno-cygwin, you won't have the cygwin library functions
available, and most bog-standard unix sources won't compile without some
porting effort. (MinGW provides _some_ of the POSIX syscalls, but it's a
massively less-complete implementation than Cygwin. MSYS provides more, ).
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
