werner triaged T4454: scdaemon is not working in cygwin (64bit) as Normal priority.

We do not support 64 bit Windows thus this problem on Cygwin is obvious. Funny that Cygwin falls back to native Windows object in this case.

werner added a comment to T4059: Errors while building from source on Cygwin (gnupg repo).

Some times I a curious and it seems that GnuPG can be used on 32 bit Cygwin. Thus I wonder what is going on on 64 bit Cygwin (which I don't know). It might be a HANDLE/socket issue where Windows is still using values which fit into a 32 bit integer but Cygwin might have changed that. Eventually we need to remove that assumption in GnuPG's code and this is why I won't have a problem to keep this bug open.

Given that Cygwin is not supported I would understand if the bug is
closed or should I open a feature request to have Cygwin officialy
supported.
I would never the less appriciate any help/hint on how to be successfull
installing "gnupg" on Cygwin.

Note that Cygwin is not a supported platform. Seems that the exec functions don't work on this 64 bit variant.
