We're using cramfs-1.1 from the sourceforge site, plus patches.  The
mkfs.jfss2 code shouldn't be too much of a problem, as we're using a
snapshot From January of this year, and the only major changes I think
we've had to make were just aimed at getting the code to compile under

If you can post a link to your sources, I can take a look and see how
different they are from what we're using, and see about putting together
an initial source and binary package for Cygwin.
