Do you have the latest binutils? There were problems with dllwrap before. And
if you got cygwin-1.1.4, it is broken; there is a trivial fix - see

Sorry. It needs rewrite anyway. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with zpty under
Cygwin currently. '\n' misteriously disappears when reading from master side
and I cannot find why (more precisely - pty handler converts '\n' to '\r\n',
as per ONLCR. Reading from master gives me just '\r'. In 1.1.3 it got EOF at
the same place).

Probably, I give up for a while and better clean up build process.
