the problem probably is that there is no way for autoconfig to
determine whether you want to compile for MingW or Cygwin
because both systems are running on Windows ;-)
Note that MSYS has a modified uname command so this is
not a problem when using the MSYS version of gcc on Windows.
But IMHO this is just want of those cases where you are better off
explicitly telling the compiler what you want.
