An additional note - cygwin only integrated native rpc support as of
1.7.4; if you are using something older, then you must have been using a
bolt-on package.  But the general gnulib philosophy with regards to
cygwin tends to be that if a bug is cygwin-specific and has been fixed
upstream in cygwin, it is easier to tell people to upgrade to the latest
cygwin than to write a hack for a one-off version of an open platform
(bug fixes for more closed platforms, like mingw or MacOS, where we have
less control over how fast or even if a patch is likely to be
forth-coming, take priority).
