    I'm experimenting with the combination cygwin/xforms/WinAxe on Win98. Setting
    the display variable works fine: myapplication.bat:

    set display=localhost:0.0
    myapplication.exe -my_application_parameters

    But I have some problems with porting a gl_canvas. I'm getting a lot of
    unresolved symbols linking with the libGL.a from cygwin1.1.6/xfree4.0. Trying to
    compile a Mesa 3D v3.4, I can't even create a libMesaGL.a - compilation stops
    with some strange errors (pragma) although I`m using the Makefile.cygwin.
    Has anybody some experience with OpenGL/xforms on windows platforms?
