 Your ticket and work with cygwin caused me to ponder what we mean by
 "supported platform" in Varnish, and I wrote up my thoughts yesterday:


 CYGWIN is a Tier C platform, one we are willing to tolerate, if it does
 not cost us too much effort.

 These changes do not look terribly intrusive.  (I don't understand why you
 have to modify all the Makefile.am to add cygwin specific LD-flags, I
 thought autocrap did that for you ?)

 On the other hand, you don't seem to have managed to get much
 functionality out of it yet, given that some of those failing tests are
 very basic functionality.

 But keep at it, send us patches instead of complete files, once you get
 the test-cases to work, and we will give you a fair reading.

 For now I will close this ticket.
