Windows 95 working again?

I checked in some patches to get Windows 9x working again.  I tried hard
for two weeks or more to come up with a plan for Windows 9x that didn't
require double copying of the Cygwin heap but, alas, I just couldn't do

Windows 95 seems carefully designed to give the illusion of functionality
while styming real programming at every step.

I couldn't duplicate the reported problem of running rsync in /bin/sh so
I don't know if this is fixed or not.  Otherwise, I think that cygwin
should be functional again.

If we can fix the autoconf bug, I'd like to make a release.
