This is the correct directory, however, only by means of the extra mount
of /usr/lib; I think the result should rather be the likewise correct
but more intuitive "/lib".
There is software thatâs getting confused by this mix-up.
If so, it's a bug in the software.  /usr/lib is a prefectly valid path.
OTOH, if it's, in fact, not a Cygwin application, then any changes to
cygwin_conv_path are moot.
I understand your reluctance; yet I think that from the two valid mappings
"C:/cygwin/lib" -> "/usr/lib"
"C:/cygwin/lib" -> "/lib"
the second one would be more logical.
