I made a quick try at this a few hours ago, but the script didn't get
anywhere - couldn't link.  That's using just the cygwin packages.  Is
there any documentation on building mingw binaries on cygwin?

I read through the patch, don't see much to change (will reread closer
shortly, since I'd like to be done with 2.8.5 today).

I've built with it a few times.
