Thanks for a more constructive reply.  Following the
instructions I can get SDL to compile (I never did say
I couldn't).  However, it is just using cygwin, gcc and
mingw to compile a win32 native application (hense the
lines containing the -mno-cygwin switch).  Not a cygwin
native application.

I wanted to know if anyone _had_ compiled it as a native
cygwin app.  From the lack of responses, I take it as a

I'll try and find time to add this functionality, but
most of my time is devoted to apache tasks.

Thanks again,
