I don't recall specific problems there. I appreciate you trying to
work through them.

We'd like --enable-shared by default.

These files were generated by cgen. An eyeballing of the sources
indicates that we have "const char*"s where they should be, so it
should work. Perhaps cgen should spit out char's instead for those

It used to be, back when cygwin's libtool was iffy.

That would be great.

I'll try to beat some xml/xslt cobwebs out of my brain to figure out
which part of that pipeline is erroneous.
