The Cygwin powerpc port is dead anyway (Andrew feel free to nuke it), so
that's not much of an issue.  I have no problems with moving this to the
cygwin header file.  It should work fine there.

I wonder if we even need the ifdef at all anymore but it's "only" been
two years or so since Cygwin32 was renamed to Cygwin.  Maybe that's
still too early.

Anyway, please do check this in.  I agree that it doesn't belong in
