Since that discussion, Yaakov Selkowitz has uploaded a Cygwin package
[1-3]. This provides shared library support (cyglua-5.1.dll), which
"make linux" under Cygwin does not. Note the patches applied in the
Lua cygport source distribution . A convention in Cygwin, BTW, is
to prefix shared libraries by "cyg".
