simple cygwin console binary available to those that could use it...

i've gone ahead and copied a console-8.1.15.exe binary up to
http://www.conserver.com/console-8.1.15.exe (also the ftp directory).
you'll need to get the cygwin1.dll file from the (currently)
release/cygwin/cygwin-1.5.23-2.tar.bz2 file on any of the cygwin.com
mirrors (http://www.cygwin.com/mirrors.html).

distributing the binary-only form of cygwin1.dll violates the GPL...and
i'd rather not get in the business of dealing with cygwin sources, etc.

this is how it was built - again, very simple (no ssl, tcp wrappers,

$ ./console -V
console: conserver.com version 8.1.15
console: default initial master server `console'
console: default port referenced as `782'
console: default escape sequence `^Ec'
console: default site-wide configuration in `/usr/local/etc/console.cf'
console: default per-user configuration in `$HOME/.consolerc'
console: options: none
console: built with `./configure --with-port=782'

if it doesn't quite work for you, i suggest either installing the cygwin
development bits so you can compile your own and/or putting together the
appropriate console.cf file/environment.
