I would like to get some inputs from Cygwin maintainers before I
start packaging; mainly because mingw-w64 is a fairly large
toolchain package and I'm still inexperienced at using cygport.
It will be nice to have it!
One question though, is there a point to having gdb? The stdin/stdout
handling is messed up a little due to it being an interactive DOS app
running within Cygwin. It works, but the command line interface can
get a little messy after a while.
You could build a cross gdb, and use gdb server on the inferior. Yeah,
its a bit of a long shot, but I think it should work.
