I know! -- somehow I have to trick the beast on Cygwin to get a clean
make install to copy the whole executables.

Should I add a uname case switch here to be on the same side?!
Or maybe a checking of env var $OSTYPE?!

Have you any other proposal for getting this *done*?

That's true -- but, there is no Unix platform (at least currently)
that *build* httpd.exe  (or any other .exe extension executable), is

I agree and I'll try to propose a change to that. But the stupidity
was introduced to demands the Cygwin folks had, so I'm not that eager
that the change will be done on that side very easily.

Wie wär's mit einem Treffen auf der CeBIT? Schätze werden einige von
uns da sein?!
