Corinna's changes should allow building Cygwin with either w32api or a
mingw-w64 version of Windows headers files.  Obviously, for now, things
work as is with w32api and mingw.

I don't know if my configuration changes will be final or not but, if
they are, you have to choose the location for the Windows header files
when you first configure.
