Presumably this is fixed or understood now, since Unknown-1 == Harry Thijssen was able to produce a working binary.

libpspp-core can be found in src/.libs

It's probably a simple fix - libpspp-core.dll is called something else on cygwin I think.
Unfortunately I don't have a Cygwin system to test this on.

I suppose we ought to be providing a --without-perl-module configure flag, so that people who can't/don't need to build the perl module can build the rest of the system.

Compiling the pspp-master-20090424 version on cygwin, after correcting ov to ow, I get the next error:

Most likely this will also happen when Mingw is used.
