It's not going to help: the cygwin dll has no (or at least extremely
limited) C language wide character support. Without that there's nothing
for libstdc++ to build on. In contrast Solaris did have C language support
for wide characters, it's just that libstdc++ wasn't taking advantage of it
until 3.4.
