I link svn against CRYPT32.DLL to use the "windows-cryptoapi" password
store code in the Subversion source. This is used by svn to encrypt
passwords it stores in the filesystem. Without it, the only choices are
"gnome-keyring" and "kwallet", which aren't great for Cygwin.

So, that's where the reference to CRYPT32.DLL comes from.

I do see the same message on my Win7 x64 system, but not on my WinXP 32
