Does this mean there is no interest in making using "platform 
independent" code (which does not require cygwin and such libraries).
Also a platform independent build system would, I guess, be preferable 
to "configure" as well.

I am relaying heavily on boost and cmake for NSCP in an attempt to make 
it plattform independent and was considering something along those 
lines. But as the code is much integrated it is, I guess, a lot of work 
to base (with patches) any work on the code as is.

But I really think such changes need to come from "within" and not from 
"outside" (as they often require structural changes) so if there is no 
interest I think it will not be a beneficial effort.

The reason this question "pops up" is that I was considering adding your 
plugins to NSCP.
