Maybe I will have a look next week. I have to make another iteration for 
the removal of gencc (with another round of compile test).

That is no longer a problem. The new compile system has no target to 
produce what used to be DYNAMIC_TEXMACS. Now the default target builds 
what used to be MIXED_TEXMACS, that version do use dynamic linking, but 
only to system libraries and GUILE.

In the future, TeXmacs will be properly modularized (with a designed 
API), then we will consider a librarized TeXmacs again. Anyway the 
GNU-correct way to do it is by using libtool, so library compilation 
would have to be redone anyway. And I think that if libtool does not 
properly support Cygwin, that is a bug worth fixing.
