If you download gcc with cygwin, the compilation
procedure is exactly the same as under *nix. As for
the cygwin1.dll problems, I don't know how compatible
the different versions are, but I assume the API is
pretty fixed. I don't think you can link cygwin

Regarding inclusion, I think the
rsync/cygwin-maintainer is on this list, so we can
hope! :-)
