Well, rshd.exe from Heimdal doesn't link. Must libutil be passed in the
gcc command line to the linker? Ah, most likely. Ok. So I'll have to add
a configure check for this.

Thanks for the tip. With this Heimdal should build with no
intervention on Cygwin.

Doesn't it?

I've configured/made/installed with --prefix=/usr/local and
/usr/heimdal. The latter works, the former doesn't (a dialog comes up
with the following error message:

"The procedure entry point ___progname could not be located in the
dynamic link library cygwin1.dll"
