Note that I was able to get Zope up and running using Cywin after:

- upgrading to the most recent snapshot Cywgin dll (cygwin1-20011016.dll),
which was as easy as copying the file over the existing 1.3.3 version of
cywin1.dll.  I didn't futz with building anything Cygwin-related out of CVS.

- recompiling Cygwin python with thread support (which was a matter of
"./configure; make; make install" with the Cygwin Python sources, as Norman

- rerunning $PY_SRC/Tools/scripts/ against the fcntl.h file that
lives in Cygwin's /usr/include/sys and saving the resulting file in

I then compiled the Zope trunk using Cygwin Python and GCC via a simple
"python" and ran it via "./start", and voila!  It at least
appears to work!  Very nice... thanks very much for the heads-up, Norman.

I need to buy the guys at Cygnus a beer or a yacht or something.
