Same here. I don't remember the last time I built development tools
in the source directory, and that results in these problems being
overlooked. Note that gcc folks now *insist* that you build in an
object directory just to avoid some of these issues.

I'll be able to run some tests this evening, and if not, definitely 
tomorrow. Let you know how it goes.

My plan for the future merges of mingw and w32api into Cygwin is to
merge only what's necessary, maintaining local changes to configure
and so on. That should help with the process, and once we document
it (should be just a few little things), it should be rote.

btw, I actually expected a whole slew of problems after the reorg, but 
Chris seems to have gotten to those before the first snapshot. Good
