I am proposing a new Cygwin package for GNU emacs 21.2, covering
both X11 and non-X modes of operation.

Here is a proposed setup.hint file:

sdesc: "GNU emacs"
category: Editors
requires: cygwin
ldesc: "Emacs is the extensible, customizable, self-documenting real-time display editor."

Note that it depends on cygwin only, because the other dlls are shipped
with it, in an emacs-private directory, because they must be rebased so emacs will
work properly.  This is due to the way that emacs represents pointers
internally -- objects in the data segment must reside below 0x10000000,
and this gets violated when the Windows loader relocates dlls.
