I am trying the windows port and moving forward with it.  Though
problems with that are covered by the regular squid mailing list, and
squid docs.

But regarding the cygwin squid ..
Howcome the 2 solutions offered on this list -  amending the hex, and
amending autoconf.h   But neither worked for me?

And if there are still problems, was there any post on the mailing list
saying that doing this was futile?
