	Apparently they have absolutely nothing to do with
 anything re: this discussion.

	All I was trying to suggest was the addition of a new directory/folder
that is specific to -mno-cygwin stuff (i686-pc-mingw32-gcc).
	Nothing more since I fail to see any reason behind forcing cross-
compiling outside of the fact that it makes things more complicated. 

	In fact I really don't seem much reason behind cross-compiling to 
begin with, especially where mingw/-mno-cygwin is concerned.
	Mingw is designed to support win32api based OS, if you haven't got a 
win32api OS, then mingw is pretty much useless since you don't have any 
means to test your source code.
	You want to build mingw executables? Then get the mingw tool set and 
build your executables...why waste time making something already quite 
complex (Cygwin) even more so...?

	I am shutting up now...sorry for any confusion I may have created.
