What does that have to do with the win/ subdir and the VC++ build?
I was under the impression that the tcl/cygwin directory was where
this "pure Cygwin" layer was going to live. I took a peek and
it appears there is a file in there too, so why would you
want to also create one in the ../unix directory? I think it is just plain
wrong to create a ../unix/ file from the win subdirectory.
For one thing, the @VAR@ variable names are not always the same.
Also, it breaks the macros that load There must be some
other way to solve the problem, it is just that I don't understand what
the problem was.
