Damien et al,

OCaml 3.10.2+rc1 seems to work on Windows XP SP2/Cygwin+MinGW (which deals
with one of the tests below). I've also successfully built findlib 1.2.1,
ocamlODBC 2.15, calendar 2.0.1 and ExtLib 1.5.1 but with issues which I'm
posting here in case anyone else wishes elaborate/correct on them:

findlib 1.2.1
	The detection of site-libs\stublibs in ld.conf for the warning at
the end of ocamlfind install is case sensitive (so C: and c: are erroneously
considered different).

ocamlODBC 2.15
	Configure.nt & Makefile.nt no longer need to mess around with
cygpath when building ocaml_odbc_c.o because ocaml_odbc_c.c now references
the OCaml headers correctly ("caml/mlvalues.h" etc).

Calendar 2.0.1
	The Makefile needs to pass -slash to ocamldep or the .depend file is
corrupt when using Cygwin make as a MinGW built ocamldep uses backslashes (I
presume something must changed since 1.9.5 as I haven't needed to patch for
that before).

ExtLib 1.5.1
	Has the wrong version number in META.txt.
