well, i'm interested. that doesn't mean i'm sure i'm capable, though

i'm now in process of debugging and fixing regressions in -3_0 and
-current branches, but, i still haven't looked at -mno-cygwin and
dll-specific stuff.

i wonder if we can create a branch in gcc cvs tree to make
cygwin-specific gcc development process a bit more "public"?

for instance, this patch

fixes one of testsuite regressions in 3_0 and make it possible to
build -current natively. I don't know, though, if it's correct way to
deal with this particular problem.
