What macro did you remove? I couldn't find any mention of it
in the diff you posted.

Actually I wasn't thinking of cross-compilation, so much as just
creating a shell script, which could be part of the curl
distribution (in the packages sub-directory somewhere), that 
I could run to make cygwin tarballs out of a standard curl
distribution... I'm sure I could throw one together, but I know
it wouldn't be very sophisticated.
