Great, I'll grab it as soon as I learn how to work tla =) BTW, I had to
# define WCOREDUMP(status) 0
to src/dparent.c to get 2.16 to compile on cygwin

Hm, I hadn't thought of using coLinux. I might give that a try sometime
and see how well it performs. I'm not really displeased with cygwin, I'm
just surprised at how much more memory it requires than linux.

That would be nice, but I don't think I'd notice much of a difference.
It's the cygwin-hosted gcc cross-compiler (cc1plus.exe, I think) process
that consumes so much memory. I guess I might be able to make a
cross-compiler under mingw instead of cygwin, but it was hard enough to
get going under cygwin that I'm not too anxious to try.
