New submission from Jon <jon.forums at gmail.com>:

The use of -mno-cygwin at http://bit.ly/qAIsZV causes build failures with versions of MinGW GCC. For example http://bit.ly/llK3f3

I recently ran into it trying to build a Mercurial snapshot using a MinGW GCC v4.6.2 flavor http://pastie.org/2274486

Why is -mno-cygwin still be used, and is there any reason why it can't be removed?

Thanks, Jon
