It is simple to make a symbolic link in /bin as well. However,

As you wish.

I think Andreas and Mike are looking at this as well. We depend
to a great amount on the redhat/cygwin developers for updates to
the cygipc code. It has always been a separate library from
the main Cygwin distribution. The http://cygutils.netpedia.net/V1.1/cygipc/index.html
does not come from the redhat distribution areas nor from the
ftp mirror sites (contrib, latest and xfree). I do not know the
future of it.

There is Lesstif. The routines in libGLmW have been included in the
three other GL libes. I'll tackle this compile for us. Where is it?

Andreas? Mike? any comments?
