My effort to make tcc build in cygwin rather as a cross-compiled
native windows application has been on hold for about a year
pending the new release of tcc.

I would classify using cygwin to build a mingw compiled tcc is just
cross compiling from cygwin to win32.

As a long time cygwin user the single configuration "technique"
that is a problem for a working cygwin/posix port is to "look underneath"
the cygwin posix environment to "discover" the native win32 beneath
and to build for that.  The correct approach is to detect cygwin as
a flavor of unix and treat it as such.

I'm looking forward to the coming stable release.  Exciting
to see we're getting close.
