I want point all who read this ML to mingw-w64 ML discussion about MSYS:
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=31008339

Also I want to say that all changes that I do in Cygwin DLL (except
symlink-copy) do not break any Cygwin stuff and only applied to
non-cygwin applications. For Cygwin applications doesn't changed
anything.

1. OSNAME
By default is Cygwin, but if you want - you can change it.

2. Paths translating - only for Win32 applications.

3. Symlink-to-copy I think can be implementing for stupid or crazy
(what you want) guys as me by something like
CYGWIN=symlinks:wincompat.

Regards,
Alexey.
