Hello Josh, Michael and all the others !

The package available from ftp.leo. ... has binaries for a lot of
platforms and at least the WIN32 version works very well.

I am not a cygwin user, I use MinGw to compile and an Emacs running
under WinNt.

The only trick is: 
Set your path in a way that the >>diff.exe<<, which comes with RCS,  is
in front of the diff.exe in MinGW and in CygWin.
Or copy all files in RCS packages in gcc-2.95.2/bin; that overwrites the
>>diff.exe<< original in that directory.

Maybe, Mumit should considre to put this diff.exe in his wonderfull

I am not very sure, but I think I have used >>ci<< and >>co<< from the
bash shell from CygWin.
