Couldn't find a copy of pre-2.0 anywhere, so couldn't really test if there
is any difference or not.

No, other than spurious crashes. I have full debugging info in all
of cygwin32, and even that doesn't help.

Well, found the problem! Any CYGWIN32 program that is linked with
-lkernel32 explicitly on the link line WILL FAIL mysteriously!!!!

Octave configure extracts all the CXXLIBS and FLIBS and then explicitly
links them, and this causes weird bugs in both gnu-win32 and ming32.

Octave now starts up, inverts a few matrices ... any standard test suite
that can run w/out dejagnu installed?
