I have ported a UNIX program (which is distributed FREE with the source code
and binaries) to work under Windows NT using the gnu-win32 tool.  However
for it to run I need to also package the cygwin.dll file.  Am I allowed to
do this?  I hope to hear from you soon so I can post the program to other
users across the Internet.  Thank you.
