Hi. I got the cygwin version of bjam to pass most of the regression tests
(fails railsys and print). Two sets of changes were necessary.

The least important ones are related to the tests themselves, mainly
related to missing 'import gcc ;' in project-root. My guess is that
something unrelated to cygwin is wrong elsewhere.

The important changes are attached and involve replacing strings with
lists so that the call to bjam (through popen2) doesn't go through the
shell (and uses execvp instead). It would be great if someone more
experienced could take a look at them. I know of a few issues already
(commented out lines about 'interpreter', for instance).
