I mean that *I* build the DLL with a cross compiler based on the
released version of gcc. Others use the standard Cygwin gcc to build
the dll and utilities.
It's easy to see that we don't use -mno-cygwin or a mingw version of gcc
to build the cygwin dll. And, obviously we need a cygwin version of
gcc to build cygwin utilities like mount and ps.
Whether we use w32api in the cygwin tree or from somewhere else really
doesn't matter as long as Cygwin builds.
