Kevin,
Thanks.  Sorry about my assumptions.  Looking at the code, a long time
ago, I assumed
it was not possible to port AfterStep to Cygwin.  Though I did much
around with Xfree86 for a while and it was absolutely not possible to
compile XFree86 under Cygwin, only a few modules and libraries did
compile.

Anyway, I am not fond of the running AfterStep, or KDE on top of Windows
desktop.  For me Windows Desktop is enough.

Sorry again about the assumptions...
