Comparison of MinGW and Cygwin Configurations

The machine used for these tests is a Dell Dimension 4600, 266GHz, 504Mb RAM. No other tasks were running during a test run. To determine any differences due to the virus scanner on Windows, I ran a test run with it enabled then disabled the virus scanner for the next test run.
