I finally got Cygwin and GCC2.95.2 up and running today.  I have some
code but I want to try it out on Win32 before passing it on.  Socket
implementations have issues and sockets is a big change that needs
testing before acceptance.

Did you know that GTK has been ported to Win32 and can generate windows
without needing X.  After getting sockets up and running someone could
a g[0-9] driver.  This may overcomplicate or uncomplicate GRASS

GTK/GLIB works with all the major players

So if it and X were supported by GRASS It could help portability.
I AM NOT SUGGESTING DROPPING X Support only adding a driver to allow 
our Win32 friends to not have to add external software (X) to use GRASS.

my 2 cents.
