Part of the problem here is that "We don't support building under
Cygwin" is the official line from php-dev.

I've got php-4.3.8 working fine as a DSO with Apache (a single 3.1M
chgphp4.dll.)  This works for whatever modules/extensions are statically
included, but obviously that's not quite acceptable.  If you
"--enable-foo=shared" you get a foo.a file in the modules dir, but this
is not a win32 executable and so it cannot be dlopen()'d.  I'm still
working on how to get these extension modules working, when I do I'll
ITP the whole batch.
