On my copy of Cygwin (`uname -a` == CYGWIN_NT-5.0
GTA-038084 1.3.22(0.78/3/2) 2003-03-18 09:20 i686
unknown unknown Cygwin), it does not have inet_ntop and
inet_pton. I don't know the depth of the implications
of simply switching those out for their dumber cousins
(inet_ntoa and inet_addr), so caveat emptor.
There was also some issue with PCRE not finding a macro
named NEWLINE, so I chunked one in for it and life
seems good again.
In the absence of RPM, EPM does a pretty good job of
packaging things under Cygwin. Find included a .list
file for EPM.
This falls under the It Works For Me(tm) testing
strategy. I hope it helps someone else.
