I've been browsing the FreeCiv site, some time ago - I remember that
in the ports section I red something about droping the cygwin version
in favour of the native Win32 one. I don't remember the exact reason

Btw I don't know how slow the cygwin version is, but having bought
Civ III, I can say that even the retail version gets pretty much slow
when you advance through the game :))
