Firebird (or at least libfbembed) is now succesfully buildable wit
cygwin/msvc, however I can't get gbuild to find the necessary libs, I'm
still getting the following error:

C:/cygwin/home/andy/libo/solenv/gbuild/ ***
gb_Deliver_deliver: file does not exist in solver, and cannot be
C:/cygwin/home/andy/libo/solver/  Stop.

The appropriate lines in are:

ifeq ($(OS)$(COM),WNTMSC)
$(eval $(call
$(eval $(call
$(eval $(call
$(eval $(call
$(eval $(call

I've tried playing with the namings/paths but that hasn't helped (I had
similar issues for a while when working on the Linux build, but that
eventually worked with the above naming). (For some reason all the
output libraries are put in bin/ rather than lib/ when building FB on
windows, but pretending they're in lib/ doesn't help either.)
