There appears to be a contradiction between the Cygwin announcement
and the upstream clisp announcement.  The upstream announcement states
that the configuration option '--with-dynamic-ffi' has been replaced by
the option '--with-ffcall', but the Cygwin announcement states that the
no-longer-supported '--with-dynamic-ffi' configuration option was used.

Does the Cygwin announcement merely contain a typo (i.e., the new
option was, in fact, used, but not described correctly), or was the
Cygwin clisp package configured incorrectly, using the old option?
If it is the latter, then this might explain the fact that 'cygcheck' 
that it cannot find 'cygfcgi-0.dll' for 
/lib/clisp-[version]/full/lisp.exe (where
[version] is either 2.43 or 2.44).
