Where have you seen a Cygwin32 version? He was talking about the patches
that would let building Mingw32 version with the native Win32 tools
(Mingw32 compiler is included into Cygwin distribution). The fact that
Mingw version of GnuPG cannot be build under Windows out-of-the-box (and so
Windows users cannot participate in its debugging/development) looks
strange to me if not to say more...

Hope to hear from you soon,
