  *** NOTE ***
  In accordance with section 10 of the GPL, Red Hat permits programs whose
  sources are distributed under a license that complies with the Open Source
  definition to be linked with libcygwin.a without libcygwin.a itself causing
  the resulting program to be covered by the GNU GPL. 
  This means that you can port an Open Source(tm) application to cygwin, and
  distribute that executable as if it didn't include a copy of libcygwin.a
  linked into it. Note that this does not apply to the cygwin DLL itself. If you
   distribute a (possibly modified) version of the DLL you must adhere to the
   terms of the GPL, i.e., you must provide sources for the cygwin DLL. 
  See for the precise Open Source Definition
  referenced above. 
  Red Hat sells a special Cygwin License for customers who are unable to provide
  their application in open source code form. For more information, please see:, or call 866-2REDHAT ext. 3007
