This is not correct. When built with -mno-cygwin the resulting .exe is
linked to msvcrt.dll instead of cygwin1.dll.

I am not sure it matters much right now. Subversion currently requires Cygwin
since we exec GNU patch and GNU diff. The "right" long term solution is to
build with the Mingw compiler (www.mingw.org). It began life as the -mno-cygwin
flag but it is much easier to deal with when compared to Cygwin gcc.
