Re: documentation on building the cygwin dll

Hello Sam,

I was able to build the dll with your script.  However, how come the  new-cygwin1.dll size is over 6 MB?  Is this correct?  I've
checked the latest version of cygwin1.dll and its size is less than 1 MB.

I'll still do some more experimenting in building the cygwin dll  until I get to build it exactly like the binary downloadable from
the mirrors.

Thanks a lot!

Best Regards,
