Well, I did something, but it's not very good:

1. Only works on my machine with an NT build of bjam under cygwin (as
opposed to a cygwin build), because jam doesn't strip ^M from line endings
in rule actions. We should fix this, but I didn't find an easy way. Perhaps
the fix is in scan.c

2. Doesn't fix the problem that Cygwin ar hangs when none of the objects
have any useful contents
