SFU and Cygwin are 2 different Windows sub-systems, and thus programs
written or compiled for one won't work under the other sub-system.

(SFU/Windows Services for UNIX uses the POSIX subsystem, while Cygwin
uses the WIN32 subsystem.)

Last time I tried, there were some minor code changes needed to get
Grid Engine 6.2u5 compiled under Cygwin... I didn't do anything Cygwin
specific for Open Grid Scheduler, and I am not sure if Dave did
anything specific for Cygwin.
