The FAQ says:

 > Our solution: Cargo allows a package to specify a script to run 
before invoking |rustc|. We plan to add support for platform-specific 
configuration, so you can use |make| on Linux and |cmake| on BSD, for 
example.

Just to make it perfectly clear, this will force a Cygwin dependency on 
cargo in practice. One popular package using autotools is enough to make 
it mandatory. Is this a conscious tradeoff?
