Thanks very much for all your help. Cheers ;^>

Great!  Are these published anywhere?  Would be useful to know about, in
case anyone asks about Cygwin/MinGW.

Btw, MinGW builds are tested as part of GitLab CI/CD of libidn:

Cygwin package search for each arch (mingw cross noarch matches both):

lists links to current and previous released packages; earlier archived not online.

Packaging repos added in recent years:

where updates to playground repo, playground branches, or master branches, feeds CI (was Appveyor now Github Actions - work in progress - especially for mingw packages as cygport shell spec substitutions not reliably performed):

The above repos and services may have access limitations depending on Cygwin and/or Github access and/or authorization.

Cygwin and most other distro packages are catalogued by

As Cygnus was acquired by RedHat, Cygwin acquired more of a Fedora flavour.
Eventually Cygwin commercial support became uneconomical, was dropped; core and newlib library released under BSD terms, packages on their own terms, with some RedHat volunteers as core developers and maintainers (fewer have time since IBM acquisition of RH), on servers funded originally by RedHat, possibly also now by other core projects, if they are funded, on those servers:
