I agree and, as I've said before, we should really mirror what glibc 
does in terms of which libraries contain which functions come rather 
then providing lots of silly, non-standard libraries to link against 
which generic configure scripts aren't going to pick up.  Also, how do 
you plan to export the symbols shmat, shmctl, shmdt, shmget?  Currently, 
from when Conrad was working on it, I have them appended to cygwin.din 
so that they are part of the c import library.  I hope the plan isn't to 
use a separate import library...

On another note, for consistency's sake (I know they don't do anything), 
shouldn't we move the msg.{cc,h} and sem.{cc,h} as well?

Elfyn, I look forward to testing your changes on WinME as I had been 
doing prior to Conrad's falling off the face of the earth...
