Oh, great. His first reply, after all this time, and you got it wrong!
Alright, only a little bit, but: there is no such thing as "cygwin.exe".
You're thinking of "setup.exe".
If the list rejects a post, it *always* sends you a bounce message
explaining why. Please check your spam folder; it might have ended up there.
Common reasons include using HTML email, or trying to discuss X11 (which has
its own list).
The answer to your problem is that cygwin doesn't use .so libraries, unlike
Linux: it uses windows DLLs to serve that purpose.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
