It would be vastly preferrable if OPenBLAS ditched the (unfortunately
quite common) notion that "Cygwin is some sort of Windows" for "Cygwin
is some sort of Linux".  I've patched out quite some bit of conditionals
like that in some other packages and it was almost always for the
better.  The worst ones are those that go into the Windows conditional
branch and then on to "oh wait, but for Cygwin we need something else".
