PATCH: compilation on cygwin

This is the note I'm adding for compilation on cygwin.  It requires a
few recent changes: not using mmap() for memory management (this is in the
zsh-3.1.7-pre-4 pre-release), a missing header needed by zftp, and a
missing function in mathfunc (these aren't).  If anybody thinks the
information is otherwise incorrect, please let me know.
