Yes, this is where I got stuck "before", when I tried to modernize the 
RPC & NFS packages.  We need to port rpcbind to cygwin, then modify the 
nfs server.  I have a partial port of rpcbind...it compiles (or did), 
but doesn't run.

However, I haven't tried again in years, and cygwin has changed quite a 
bit...so you may have more luck now, than I did then.
