I had a look, but I couldn't do too much and decided to go through
another way. Apparently there is a patch that can be applied to the
libnet source files before compiling the library under cygwin. It was
once available under http://mathieu.carbou.free.fr/pub/libnet/126.96.36.199/l
ibnet-cygwin-diffs-188.8.131.52.zip. Is anyone here who has downloaded this
zip file or knows where a copy is available on the link?
