I suspect *everything*, particularly when the makefile is constructed
by ./configure on the basis of reading the operating system's entrails

On OpenBSD a lot of weird stuff is definitely due to virtualisation -
OpenBSD is a blue pill showing every glitch in the Matrix.

Windows (and hence Cygwin) have the red pill especially built for
them, so are much easier to keep fooled, it's true ;-)

Just trying on XP in VirtualBox as well.
