As of 12:PM EST, I can confirm that Jabberd 1.4.3CVS compiles cleanly 
under Cygwin.  I also pulled down/untarred

	* JUD v0.5
	* MU-Conference v0.3
	* xdb_sql v1.3

and using the same techniques I have in the past (basically copied over 
my modified Makefile for each module), I compiled/linked these modules, 
hooked them with jabber.xml, and my final test was a config where

* only crypt authentication used
* jabberd only listened to port 5222 on localhost (, 
effectively preventing non-SSL connections from clients
* jabberd listened to port 5223, had necessary SSL key.pem file, etc.

Then, using Rhymbox as my client, I tested this from as many angles as I 
could think of:

* Created accounts prior to locking down non-SSL connections
* Tested JUD functionality (mostly looking up users to add to roster)
* Tested basic c2s connectivity (first with non-SSL connections, then 
once I closed that down, with SSL connections)
* Tested MU-C with non-SSL connections
* Created accounts using only SSL connections (and it works now!!!  This 
failed for me in the past)
* Tested JUD via SSL
* Tested MU-C features via SSL
* tested s2s connectivity

In short, jabberd runs under Cygwin with all the basics that you expect 
under Linux!!!  Kudos everyone.  This is working great!

NOTE:  I haven't tested out xdb_sql yet, but it compiles cleanly, and 
I'm hopeful. :-)

P.S.	Will send Makefile mods to module owners, as well as posting them 
online for anyone so interested.
