So, I thought that I was the cmake maintainer for cygwin? So, really I
don't "need" to do anything. I really don't want two version out there.
If someone builds CMake from source and it behaves totally different
than the one that comes with cygwin, that IMO is a very bad thing, and
will cause lots of confusion. And seriously we are working on exactly
what you want, and CMake has been like this for 10 years now, I would
think you could be a bit more patient and give me some more time to come
up with the correct fix.
