Cygwin 1.3.5-1 on NT 4 PL 6 (NT Patchlevel is a guess)
Starting Apache with "apachectl start" will give a Windows message box reporting "Windows
cannot locate libhttpd.dll in the PATH", and the full path (wording differs).
Install Cygwin and Apache for Cygwin.
As a temporary fix, I have added the following line to the top of my apachectl script:
Note that the -R option in the HTTP= line cannot work, since the Apache executable is linked
in a way that it requests that its DLLs are loaded on start-up.

I suspect that the build process uses the wrong flags for linking the DLL. I noticed that
the recent release notes for Cygwin mentioned some ld issues, but I haven't taken a closer
