these cygwin b20 mysql client files have been provided by me to Monti from TcX.

The libmysqlclient.a lib and all client files have been ported to cygwin by us, but
the mysqld daemon uses pthreads which are currently not or at leasr experimentacly
supported within the latest cygwin snapshot.

So you will have to wait for a cygwin port of mysql until pthreads are running or
get a license for the native Win32 port provided from TcX.
