I've just commmitted some changes for experimental support of Cygwin.
I hope it does not break others.

* not tested with privileged mode (su(1) on Cygwin does not work as expected)
* bulitn X is not supported yet
* ...and so on...

* sysutils/user_cygwin should be created based on user_interix
   (+ maintain Cygwin's /etc/{passwd,group} with mkpasswd/mkgroup).

added quick & dirty one ;(

* mk/plist/shlib-pe.awk should be improved based on shlib-dylib.awk.

just copy & replace s/.dylib/.dll/, not tested widely.

* for "PE" part in mk/pkgformat/pkg/metadata should be changed from
   using `ldd' to `objdump' (or something else), because `ldd' will
   be hung up with some DLLs.

I've just throw ldd issue to cygwin mailing list:
If any usable information is not available, I may disable metadata
support for PE temporary.
