It has been brought to my attention that /usr/lib/w32api is now taking

This is incorrect, and results in the unfortunately-named w32api 
libuuid.a being found instead of the completely unrelated *NIX libuuid 
(which is what *NIX software expects to find).

Linking from /usr/lib/w32api is handled in binutils, and this is the fix 
that my cygwin cross-toolchains are using to support sysroots:


Please revert r227962.
