I'm not sure I can do that at all.  From what I see from the MSDN
documentation I need the Microsoft MIDL precompiler to get RPC function
calls working.  But Cygwin is built using gcc.  There's no OSS MIDL
compiler available.  Does anybody have docs or, even better, example
code how to do the client side without using MIDL?
