The standalone DLL that we support is cygwin1.dll. We don't support
it for free, however, as much as people want us to.
Much of the email to the commercial side of the house for cygwin comes
from people who want us to help them figure out the best way to
circumvent the GPL and our licensing requirements. I've always found
this odd. It's like going to the police to get information on the
best way to rob a bank.
