At first I tried compiling with (gcc) -mno-cygwin, thinking it would be
run from inside a Windows DOS environment, so wouldn't have access to
cygwin, but that didn't compile. I tried then with -mno-win32 and that
worked fine, though I don't understand how it found cygwin1.dll.
Is the intent simply to copy shell.exe into /usr/bin? BTW, should you
include a copyright and license term comment in shell.c? It would make
me feel much more comfortable.
I've tried it on my system, and it's working well. I'll get my zsh
colleague to try it out soon.
