Yeah, and I doubt that anybody in the Cygwin project is going to see
the point of maintaining such patches anyway.  As Marco said, their
idea is to provide a Unix-ish platform as best they can, not adopt all
the worst features of Windows.  I kinda wonder why they have declspec's
on the getopt variables at all.

I think it's all fixed, but I want to wait for another buildfarm cycle
just to be sure all the relevant critters are failing where we expect
them to and not somewhere else (like pltcl).
