Gerrit keeps coming to my aid ;-). Thank you! I will study your work, how
fortunate I feel that you've been the one to do this. I asked in the right
place, for once, it appears!

I understand you to mean that these files:
imap-2000a-cygwin-bin.tar.gz 4454129 1,571 i386 .gz
imap-2000a-cygwin-src.tar.gz 1363877 793 i386 Source .gz
neither do contain a "c-client.a" lib? I cannot get a connection to the
server to download right now; maybe in a few minutes. Until I can download
I cannot look inside the archives to see what's there. Assuming I
understood you correctly, what is in the binary package, is only the
compiled imap library archive (and headers, naturally), is this probably
correct? That would be a shortcut? Will this allow my build of the client
to be more simple? The exact relationship of "c-client" to the imap library
isn't clear to me, even after reading the maintainer's documentation over
two occasions (today and last month).
Maybe now it will all be simple and i won't need any more help with the UW
IMAP C library part of the Perl work i want to do. I will holler if that
isn't the case, tho :-).
Hmm, Google didn't find this sourceforge project for me. Surprising!
