That's just a minor part of the story. It uses *one* function from the
Windows API which is used if /etc/resolve.conf is not available.
All the rest of minires is using pure socket functionality and therefore
just a tiny part of the lib is actually Windows dependent. Even on Windows,
a resolve.conf overwrites using the Windows API.
So this has nothing to do with Cygwin in the first place. Minires
would add a resolver lib to newlib which is 99% platform independent
and the 1% Windows API could be appropriately ifdef'd out.
Does that sound different now?
