I wrote a program that uses the cygwin UNIX layer.  I need to link this
application to a library that was written for Win32.

My program compiles with cygwin, no problems.  When I tried to compile the
library using cygwin, it includes io.h and wants the 'access' function
prototype.  But io.h (non-mingw32 version) has almost nothing in it.

I'm compiling the source of both without the mingw32 option.  Thus, gcc
does not look into the mingw32 header directory.  Am I supposed to compile
the library using mingw32, and my program with non-mingw32?  I was under
the impression that I can write an application that uses both the Win32
API _and_ the cygwin UNIX layer.  But the header files seem to stand in
the way...
