I'm Cygwin's clisp maintainer, but I haven't thought about clisp for a while 
because upstream clisp development has been inactive for a couple years.  The 
last significant work I did on it was to get dynamic loading of modules working 
on Cygwin.

I have a vague recollection that I decided there was no longer a need for the 
full linking set once dynamic loading was working.  But I'll try to refresh my 
memory and see if I can provide it.  It will probably be a few days until I get 
to this.
