Re: port of omniorb

I've done some research.

Draft version 10 was adopted with minor variations as the posix
standard. I've been coding off the single unix specification version2,
which is a superset of the posix standards.

So you can assume cygwin is draft version 10, and you won't be far off.

The next cygwin snapshot to be released (Dated after Apr -10) will have
nearly all the functions from that spec. Not all actually _do_ anything
:]. They all return appropriate errors if they aren't supported. The
only missing function is pthread_atfork, and the main missing
functionality is the core of pthread_cancel*. The cancel functions do
work, they just don't do anything. There's around 30 other library
functions that have to be updated to provide full cancellation point
support so that is a long term project.

In short: if you get a snapshot with this code in it, miniORB should
build OOTB. If it doesn't.. please let me know (via the list).
