Hi Jeff,

Thanks a lot for your interest. I just wanted to clarify that I am
*not* looking for a Windows port. I'm actually trying to compile it in
Cygwin, which *should* behave like a regular *nix system, so that
issue should *not* be specific of windows systems. If it turns out to
be a "happens-in-windows-cygwin-only" thing, then it is most likely
coming from some problem with my Cygwin installation, or (unlikely) a
Cygwin bug.

Thanks,
Gustavo.
