and again following up on myself, with Windows XP Home, 
updated with SP3, and the latest Cygwim, I get a perfect patch 
and compile on the external from May 23.  takes a bit over 
ten minutes to complete the compile and link.  I have no 
idea WHY Windows/Cygwin is so slow.

By the way, the warnings about unused variables: otxt and olog 
are harmless, and may be ignored.  They relate to some code 
which is not yet finished, and serve as a reminder.  Similar 
warnings from time to time about type conversions into a 
printf are also expected, as debugging prints are inserted and 
used to track down the path the shim is taking through code.

In seeking to start it:
 	./shim.exe --help
it seems to use lots of processor, and no drive, and never 
returns a prompt, so function is not yet clear.

I realize that I patched away the getaddrinfo(), and so am 
repeating the process without that one for inet.c at the 
moment. I also get errors on some of the code in inet.c, and 
so will send this along to the office for review.
