Currently failing under Cygwin, but I haven't completely figured out why.
At the very least, Configure/configure.gnu doesn't seem to be picking up
that we're running on cygwin, which means that $firstmakefile is set to a
variable that breaks the build process, and things go poorly from there.

I'm now following the README.cygwin32 to the letter, running ./Configure
manually, and making sure it picks cygwin32 for hints.  Will report back soon.

On that note, the README.cygwin32 contains a few references to 5.004, which
I assume are stale.  The attached patch modernises these.
