I've made some SQLite packages, and put them up for testing:


These packages enable the requested build options.

*Plus*, they attempt to work around at least one of the problems that 
lead us to try building SQLite in Unix mode on Cygwin in the first 
place.  Instead of a wholesale Unix mode switch, we only do temporary 
directory selection in a Unix way instead of asking Windows for a 
temporary directory, which is often not user-writeable when the user is 
not an admin.  This certainly tries to address Daniel Colascione's 
reported problem, and may address Achim Gratz' original problem, too.

This required a fairly ugly hack to the SQLite code, so I'm not even 
going to consider posting an RFU message for these packages until I get 
some positive feedback from those affected.
