Fix Cygwin ports #2266
Cygwin should have
This causes a strange chain of events leading to a broken compiler: because of how Cygwin handles
This is manifesting itself in testsuite failures - it obviously doesn't affect the build, because bytecode images are never executed directly.
No problem, @shindere! I don't think parallel builds worked for Cygwin before all the build system changes, either (and they definitely didn't for the native Windows build system!).
This certainly does need to go in 4.08, yes -

Re. Changes: I think that either approaches are reasonable, but I think @shindere's point was also that debugging this one issue was particularly delicate, and handling it separately better credits the effort evolved. (If I understand correctly, Jérémie was also involved in tracking it down.) I tend to agree with this idea of separating the most work-inducing changes on their own.
