I've uploaded 4.3.4 with fixes for the problems noted in 4.3.3 (thanks for
the responses).

Builds and installs clean on cygwin.

I can offer little in the way of testing though, as it's so feature rich and I barely use it. but at least ./configure, make, make install (just like that, no options or environment variables) offered no errors and the result runs.

MinGW was another story:

bkw@tv /cygdrive/d/src/zsh-4.3.4
$ ./configure:

configure logs here: rsync of the build attempt

But MinGW is such an odd environment this doesn't mean much. Plus I'm still just beginning to try this build so I'm not actually yelling for help yet as there are tons of things I haven't tried yet. (like join the mingw mail list even)
Mostly just wanted to report no problems on cygwin.
For the record the way I'm using mingw, so far, is to use cygwin with mingw's bin prepended to PATH, rather than msys, and it's working ok to build some other dead simple utils at least.
