Unfortunately, autoconf is doing this for us. It is picking up
windows.h from /usr/include/w32api, which in turn includes windef.h.
Besides, we *do* want to convert "/" to "\" when running in the native
win32 environment, so the #ifdef _WIN32 block is fine. Its just when
we are in Cygwin that we'd like to skip over that function (or change
its behaviour). So its a run-time and not compile-time setting I'm
So, again, is there a way to dynamically detect whether a binary is
running within Cygwin (or maybe just from the BASH shell)?
