No, this is not a part of the ast library nor ksh. David Korn's UWIN
posix.dll implements the mkfifo() function but I don't know how he did it.
ast is meant to be a replacement for many UNIX tools like the GNU
file/text/findutils etc. based on a highly flexible shared library.

UWIN and Cygwin kernel functions seem to be implemented very differently, so
it's unlikely that AT&T folks contribute to Cygwin's internal functions.
