I didn't know that about Cygwin; thanks for the info!  But clearly we have
some ARM developers that want to build on Cygwin, since this is the second
time this has come up.  I still think there's value in getting this problem
solved.  I guess the issue now is whether or not individual developers have
the time to solve this problem, or they find installing a VM easier.
