I'm forwarding here a request of Bastien Guerry, maintainer of Org mode, after
looking at a problem I have when running Cygwin Emacs:

Please report the problem to Cygwin people. They can either upgrade to a more
recent version of Emacs, or try to sort out the problem with
(find-library-name "org"). I cannot do anything from here, `find-library-name'
is not in latest Org.
