Well, I don't trust that my Hotmail account sends just ASCII, so I made the 
patch available via a link.

>Why do you want to install the shared libs in $(bindir)?
It's the Cygwin way, DLLs are together with EXEs in the same directory, and 
import libraries for DLLs  are in $(libdir).

>Why do you use EXTRALIBS instead of SHFLAGS in vhook/Makefile?
In Cygwin the order of libraries is important, the linker wants the 
libraries you depend on at the rightmost position in the command line.

>Patch rejected unless you come up with a really good explanation.
By this second patch the vhooks size tops at about 200KB, if I use 
--enable-static, then vhooks increase to about 3MB.
