Re: lgamma function not available with -mno-cygwin

WIN32 != cygwin

If you want cygwin-provided functions, build a cygwin version (i.e. 
without -mno-cygwin).  Otherwise, if the functions are not available 
from MS libraries (which is what you are using when you build with 
-mno-cygwin) you need to either (a) write replacements yourself, or (b) 
complain to Bill G.

Further discussion of a non-cygwin build of GNUPLOT belongs elsewhere. 
perhaps the mingw list?

You assume much: that the authors of Microsoft's runtime library, 
msvcrt.dll, have ANY interest in cross-platform compatibility with 
standard libc.

Right -- libm is a cygwin library, so it'll need cygwin1.dll.  But, by 
using -mno-cygwin, you're not USING cygwin1.dll for system services, you 
are using msvcrt.dll.

See above.
