I use gmp under cygwin in two ways , for static gmp libs only,

for programs that need to use cygwin.dll , I just use the default configu=

and for programs that I want to run native , or must not use cygwin.dll ,=
configure with

=2E/configure --build=3Dathlon-pc-mingw32 --host=3Di586-pc-mingw32 --disa=

effectivily just using cygwin as a build enviroment only , saves me havin=
g to=20
install both mingw32 and cygwin.

Although , I only use the mpz,mpn functions , none of the formatted outpu=
printf type stuff
