I found the problem. It seems that some file, either a
import lib or something else is causing the linkage to
cygwin1.dll. Once it happens in one place you are SOL
for the rest of the build as you cannot linking to
cygwin1.dll and msvcrt.dll. Using MSYS for a mingw
build/target now works exacltly the same as cygwin
except for not being dependant on a emulated

As far as WINE is concerned I dont think we should try
to support MINGW under cygwin and just stick to cygwin
on cygwin and Mingw on MSYS.
