I just discovered that an environment variable OSTYPE is not longer exported by default to a subprocess under this version of Cygwin. Why did this occur? Was it intentional, or inadvertent? I use this often, and although I can perform an export OSTYPE explicitly, I now have lots of broken makefiles that won't work anymore. Do you have any suggestions? Otherwise, can this guy be fixed in the next minor release?
