  I found using VM too uncomfortable and limiting, this is why i 
switched to Cygwin. I have real ARM HW here to actually run the built 
code. And Cygwin NFS server helps a lot with this.

  There's Cygwin package. But i checked it, it doesn't have reloc 
definitions either. So:
a) Not an option anyway.
b) Completing system-wide elf.h would solve all problems at once, and 
increase compatibility. Anyway Cygwin's aim is to be as close to UNIX 
environment as possible, to make things working out of the box. Or am i 
wrong here ?
