As said, I only added the --dont-fork==--no-detach  mostly because I use it
in my scripts. (The original --dont-fork did disable just the fork() call,
not the whole become_daemon() call, so it was slightly different from

O_TEXT and O_BINARY also work on MSVC (and propably on most other windows

So perhaps 

#if defined(_WIN32) || defined(__CYGWIN__)
#define TEXT O_TEXT
#define TEXT 0
#define BINARY 0


       fd = open(fname, O_RDONLY | TEXT)

(not sure what to call those -- "TEXT"/"BINARY" might collide with

Or is 

#if !defined(O_TEXT)
#define O_TEXT 0
#if !defined(O_BINARY)
#define O_BINARY 0

I'm not sure what I was thinking back then :) (This dates back to few years
ago). Perhaps I tried "rt", but it didn't work or something. Or perhaps it
was just my thinko. It should work now with cygwin, you're right.

Ok, how about 

#if defined(_WIN32) || defined(__CYGWIN__)
