And that's where you went off in the wrong direction. You're writing to the Cygwin mailing, but that's the MSYS2 package repository. Those are two different environments, so you should _not_ mix up them up like that.

This is a pretty awful response. The MSYS2 part of my answer, the part OP tried
is certainly possible. When Cygwin package maintainers are ignoring serious
package issues for months:

- http://github.com/cygwinports/mingw64-x86_64-pcre/issues/1

it is not wrong to seek a sane alternative, which this is. You certainly can mix
these as in this case we are not involving the Cygwin DLL. To J (OP), if you
want a real answer and not this brush off, repost your question here and I will
try to work with you:


as technically your original question has already been answered (by me), and
your new issue is outside the scope of this mailing list.
