[JDEV] Building under cygwin, -lpth

Building on Jonathans advice...

Copy jabber-1.4.2.tar.gz into your working directory, then...

tar xvzf jabber-1.4.2.tar.gz
cd jabber-1.4.2
cd jabberd/pth-1.4.0
make install
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libpth.a /lib/libpth.a
cd ../..

- Be sure to use gzip or tar to uncompress the tarball, using Winzip
will cause compile errors (thanks Jason Prentice)
- Make sure to link libpth.a after building

Hope this helps,
