I know this is a newbie question, but I can't find it in the
documentation. How (if?) do you compile a standard x86 source to
support cygwin?
How would you build the application on linux? Same way, i.e., something

gcc -o foo foo.c

Wrong! You type "make".

Phsh, newbies. ;-)

Wrong! You type "./configure", then you type "make".

Phsh, oldbies!

[ hmm.. autoconf.. automake... aclocal... we could probably take this back
