Re: perl with cygwin 1.5 doesn't fly.

Hallo George,

Hey, I try to build perl from sources with the new 64bit Cygwin 1.5
prerelease.  All the code that is failing is the perl code from the
perl sources which is used to build Perl.

Unfortunately, the static miniperl compiled with Cygwin 1.5 fails.  It
seems that every 'my' is treated like a '#' and so it is not visible.
