I changed the in cygwin after you reported the problem so that
patch isn't needed.

On thinking about this a little, it seems that the only changes that
need to be made are in mingw.  Mingw needs the header files and libraries
from winsup/w32api but no other directories should need this.  So, I think
that changing the top-level Makefile is not right.  Can we change the mingw
Makefile instead?

I don't know about the dummy change.  It seems ok to me but I'd like to get
Mumit's ok in case he has some other way in mind.

This has already been commented on in the cygwin-developers mailing
