Rebuilds fine from source. I think setup.hint should include 'libgcc1'
as a dependency (I know it's pulled in indirectly via libstdc++6, but
rtorrent.exe has a direct dep on libgcc1, so it should be listed
explicitly IMO).

I didn't test actual operation; I also wonder whether you should adopt
Corinna's recommendation for d_reclen:

	itr->d_reclen = __builtin_offsetof (struct dirent, d_name)
                  + strlen (entry->d_name) + 1;

but I didn't try it myself.

The README file was missing the runtime dependencies.  Updated
.cygwin.patch attached.
