Oops, seems to be a problem with the timestamp-trick. The last build was 
with multiplicity. Thats the reason why the tarball is so big...
I build with multiplicity because i got a lot of more errors during tests 
without it.

My last build is with multiplicity, so the 'cygwin' dirs could be removed.
I also fixed 'ld2' now, and load it up in a few minutes.

I changed nothing cygwin specific until now. Only applied all the patches
since perl-5.6.1 was released.
