      Description

      http://sources.redhat.com/ml/cygwin/2004-04/msg00679.html shows that libc does not have catopen, catgets, etc. Library compiles but does not link.
      A recent thread (Jun 2005) discusses adding "libcatgets" http://blog.gmane.org/gmane.os.cygwin.applications/month=20050601
      There are at least these approaches:
      1. Implement the missing stuff ourselves
      2. Implement messages.cpp in terms of the underlying Windows messaging subsystem (i.e. FormatMessage, etc)
      3. Require libcatgets , change build
