Seems to me that's an anti-cygwin32 "feature" of the source code.  They've
overlooked the possibility of systems supporting both WinAPI and Unix style.
We do need to be able to express a preference for WinAPI calls, whether
running under cygwin32 or not, and, further, to use WinAPI calls in some cases
when not running under NT.
For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"gnu-win32-request@cygnus.com" with one line of text: "help".
