I also do it under (but not for) Cygwin nowadays, BCC had problems with
multibyte encodings (such as Unicode) under W98. Cygwin also has the
advantage that everything can be done from the same shell prompt, since
patching requires (in my experience) the Cygwin patch program (other
patchers choke on the official Vim patches).
