I'm working on a port of all of the cygwin specific make features into
make 3.78.9x right now.  The unfortunate bit is that these patches are a
pain.  However, if you only work in a unix like environment and don't
care about windows paths then the basic unix sources compile and worked
for me under cygwin.
