Why are you writing directly to Chris?  This is a public mailing list.

This is a public mailing list for non-xfree cygwin related topics. 
Xfree questions do not belong here.  Interix questions do NOT belong 
here, unless they somehow relate to cygwin.

Let me see if I understand: You say "interix is better than cygwin, and 
you must use interix regardless, because your boss likes it."  So you 
want OUR help to get your code working with a DIFFERENT product?  Why 
should we?

Please see to 
understand the motivations behind the coders on public mailing lists. 
Then ask yourself, given that information, why subscribers to *this* 
mailing list would assist you.

On the cygwin-xfree list, you *could* pose this question as "Can 
cygwin-xfree work with the interix runtime instead of cygwin?"  The 
answer is probably no without significant work, but at least the 
question would be (sortof) ontopic there.  It is totally offtopic here.
