Subject: RE: makefile, build (cygwin)

One note, changes like this would only build useable exe files, that run
using the cygwin shell.  The symlinks would not work properly under a plain
Win32 cmd.   However, the unix symlink model is far from correct on win32 as
it is. There are some environmental, and stdin/stdout strangeness from using
the symlink.c method.   I personally copy john.exe to whatever name I need
(such as copy john.exe unique.exe).  If done that way, all of the strange
behaviors go away.


So the loss of PROJ_WIN32 may not be possible, who knows.

All of those files were getting cleaned up properly with make clean, even
without ../run/calc_stat.exe being on the rm -f line (../run/calc_stat was
on the rm -f line).


We might want to look at Cygwin requirements again.  On my install, the
normal unix ln -s method, and lack of .exe was working just fine (i.e. the
PROJ rule only).  Probably too late for J8, but should be on the radar for
later builds.
