RE: svn on cygwin!

The -mno-cygwin includes the cygwin library as a static, instead of a dll,
so in theory it should work the same.

However, I'm so happy that it works that I really don't mind moving the
cygwin.dll file around, of course I do have cygwin on my machine anyway, so
it is no extra work for me.

Now, is anyone other than me working on trying to get the server working
under cygwin? I knew that the client was being worked, so I started working
on the server (I already have an Apache 2.0 server running in my cygwin
environment). A few more libraries and I might even make it through a
compile of subversion. Of course I would love to see this work native, but
cygwin is not that evil.
