You're right; I can't fix the problems.

It would help if someone would post cygwin gdb results to gdb-testers
so that we know if gdb even builds and the test suite runs.  The last
cygwin results were from Raoul Gough on 2003-04-28.

I've gotten into a mood where if gdb-testers doesn't contain any recent
results for a platform, then I don't care too much if that platform
breaks.  Which is actually a bad mood because that includes major
platforms like solaris and cygwin.

Also please note that the decision to remove expect+dejagnu came from
the Gcc Summit and was announced by Ben Elliston, who's going to do
the actual removal on 2004-06-11, unless someone objects.
