Can you not compile to the win32 API under Cygwin as well ? thats what I
am (about) to try and do when the system finishes compiling -gui... I hope
I am not running down a blind alley. I was under the impressing cygwin
included all thr win32 API as well.

O.K., will do.... (as someone else said, it would be nice to get those into
the main tree).

I have configures GUI with '--without-x' which I assume is correct, and
am going to configure back as '--enable-graphics=winlib --enable-server=win32'
which is how you get the win32 native code isnt it ? I am somewhat hazy as to
what to do with gdomap gdnc and gpbs though - the latter is
preseumably not required, and the former seems to run... but gdnc coredumps,
though I have no idea if it is required or not.
