Remember, you must also install the headers and libs in the cygwin-inst
for the snapshot when building afresh with a new dll.  You may need to
even rebuild the dependant object libraries, but that isn't always the
case.  Cygwin1.dll remains binary executable backward compatible but not
necessarily binary object backward compatible.
