Building on Windows works with MinGW. I can't speak for Cygwin.

Cygwin, and XP with Cygwin a couple of years old.

pthreads_win32.h says:

    #ifndef _SIGSET_T
    typedef int sigset_t;

types.h says:

    #ifndef _SIGSET_T_
    #define     _SIGSET_T_
    typedef int _sigset_t;

Is it supposed to be possible to build on Windows or is magick
