autoconf-style ./configure, makefile.in already works for Linux, MacOS 
X, and more (see pd/src/, externals/ggee, externals/ext13, etc.) and it 
should work on Cygwin as well.  But it seems no one has done much with 
pd on cygwin, so this idea remains to be tested.  But I think it would 
pay off in a number of ways: you wouldn't need an expensive proprietary 
compiler to compile pd/etc.; one makefile/config system would work on 
all platforms; the cygwin installer would install and keep up-to-date 
many of the libs.  The only disadvantages that I can think of is that 
might not work with commercial compilers like Visual Studio, and you 
would need the cygwin DLL to run pd on Windows.

Other than that, it seems people either have separate makefiles or 
separate sections in the Makefile, in order for it to work on Windows.
