IIRC, the argument was that APR is a portable runtime, and it makes no
sense to make it run on top of another portable runtime (which cygwin
is, after all). I think I did suggest using "gcc -mno-cygwin" to avoid
the dependency on cygwin.dll, and the discussion stopped there.

Personally I'd prefer not to have to depend on MSVC for the Win32 port.
Maybe we should put that on the list of things to do for 1.0?
