For my personal use, I use gcc to generate binaries, but occasionally I need
to make a binary available to someone who doesn't use Cygwin. For that I use
After the fact, I would like to know whether the binary requires Cygwin support

Curious what techniques others might use.
One of my wishes for Cygwin is for the "file" command to make the distinction.
