standards for building

To Cygwin group,

I have used Cygnus B20.1 to compile an older version
of GRASS for an application that we use.  Everything
went OK but I did have to hack in some changes in
the Makefiles, the Gmakefiles, and the source.

Someone from the GRASS organization contacted me
and asked me to build their most recent 5.0beta6a.
That's fine; however, I wanted to make the "hacks"
consistent with your standards for building CygWin
compliant products.  For instance, would I use a
"#ifdef Cygnus" to isolate source code?   What
would I use in the makefiles?

BTW, we are moving behind a firewall soon so I will
have to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to this list.  The
id should still work.
