In this instance, it's very much Cygwin that's causing the problem, rather
than Windows! I didn't realise that Cygwin's Dynlink only extended to pure
bytecode (it used not to have Dynlink at all).

You could try using the -w32port mingw flag for GODI to build the MinGW
version of OCaml - you can still use it from Cygwin's bash prompt but you
will definitely have a fully functional dynamic loading version.
Alternatively, if you want I can email you the instructions change log I use
for building MinGW & MSVC OCaml on Windows (one day I'll have the time to
put it online <sigh>).

Try GODI/MinGW first - building PCRE is not trivial and AFAIK GODI has full
build-support for ocaml-pcre on Windows.
