I attempted a port of WINE to SFU a while back and it should work as
well as the Cygwin port would once we get Get/SetThreadContext
supported implemented for the Cygwin case. There were some issues I had
at the time getting configure running with ksh and then with conflicing
types in msvcrt. All in all there were no major showstoppers except the
same problems as the Cygwin port which is time.......


PS. OpenNT the first incarnation of SFU/Interix was based on Cygwin.
