Make a user mount table in /etc/fstab.d/<user> and populate it with the
appropriate mount points (most of those will be bind mounts).  In
addition, I like to keep the other Cygwin installation accessible via
the system /etc/fstab as /mnt/cygwin32 and /mnt/cygwin64 respectively,
if you want to be able to install directly into these from the other
Cygwin you also need to re-create the ...usr/bin and ..usr/lib mount
points there.  Anything I've had in /usr/src has been moved to
/mnt/share as well.  That actually works a bit too well, so I've
resorted to giving the shell windows different colors so I can remember
which Cygwin I'm working with.
