Ok, time for a change :-)

I've upgraded my cross environment to cygwin-1.1.7-1.  Because lots of
things changed, and lots of the changes were fixes, I decided to throw
in a couple of changes myself too.  So, here are the differences with
1.1.4 (that I know of):

  * Built with new untested tools, gcc-2.95.2-6, etc.

  * Used cygwin's regex library.  Cygwin is now distributing a regex
    library, which is good news because chances are better it won't
    break.  The bad news is that we had lots of troubles before with
    guile+regex, so things may be broken.

  * The native binary tarballs (*-i686-cygwin.bin.tar.gz) are now
    compiled and packaged with normal root and prefix (/ and /usr),
    which is the way Cygnus does it now, and it's the Right Thing.
    This means that we don't have to do the /Cygwin trickery anymore
    (PATH, *PREFIX, symlinks), but you should take note to unpack them
    in the cygwin root, it's no longer possible to unpack them from

Ok, so this new stuff is experimental, it could quite possibly just
not work at all.  So why not have a look at:

James, would you like to post a description or some pointers about the
installer stuff you've made?  Now that is seems handy for windows
people, it's a good thing if someone else could pick it up, ifever the
need arises.
