      Yes, "./configure; make" works flawlessly.

      No, there's a version of CVS you can install as a part of cygwin; I
      meant to simply use that instead of WinCVS. I'm sure there's an option
      in WinCVS to use UNIX line endings, but if you're working in a mixed
      UNIX/Win32 environment, it's way easier to use one set of
      cross-platform tools, and cygwin lets you do that -- i.e., standardize
      on the UNIX command-line CVS client.

      When you install cygwin, you have to option of using "text mounts" for
      your Win32 file systems (which means Cygwin will try to do CRLF <-> CR
      mapping for you) or "binary mounts" (cygwin will pass files through
      unchanged.) Using binary mounts leads to fewer suprises, although you
      could make this work either way.
