Oh.  Sorry.  I didn't pay as much attention as I should have.  I thought
this was a normal vague clueless "question".  Instead, it was not just
clueless but *remarkably* pushy.

Chuck's response is correct of course.  I do disagree slightly with
Chuck's suggestion to move this to the xfree mailing list.

This is off-topic for any cygwin mailing list.  You're on your own.
Please don't bother the cygwin mailing lists with this type of question

For the record, I'm not really happy or unhappy about Interix.
Discussions of how to get things working under Interix are just
off-topic.  I don't know anything about Interix beyond the high level
stuff.  And, again, discussing ways to get things working with Interix
is very obviously off-topic.

And, all of you who are now poised to send off a missive informing me of
various ways that mentioning Interix could conceivably be on-topic --
please don't bother.  I don't need educating on the subject.
