sizeof(long) is 8 on 64-bit Cygwin. This is to make sure it is inconsistent
with MSVC and MinGW-w64, and make sure there will always be ABI mismatches
unless the headerfiles are modified accordingly.

OTOH, it is one only sane 64-bit compiler on Windows. You can actually take
code written for 64 bit Linux or OSX and expect that it will work
