Thanks for trying this again.  I've changed the "idirafter"'s in the
specs file to "isystem"'s and it now finds the stuff in the mingw
directory first when -mno-cygwin is specified.

As I mentioned in another thread, this does not eliminate the searching
of the /usr/include directory because you need that to grab the
windows-specific headers that live there.  The current cygwin layout
mixes windows and "POSIX" header files in the same directory.

This means that if a -mno-cygwin program says '#include <sys/termios.h>'
it will find the cygwin version of termios.h.  This is as it has always
been, AFAIK, and I'm not going to try to redesign things to correct this
now.  If anyone wants strict separation, I suggest installing the mingw
version of gcc in a separate directory.

Anyway, I've uploaded a new tar ball with the above changes.  I've also included
the specs file that it uses in this message.  It should be the only
change to this distribution, if you want to try it.
