Dear Bug Team!
when try build XEmacs in cygwin 1.7, the linker failed with following
undefined reference to `_IID_IPersistFile'
This error is caused by the new libuuid.so delivered by
cygwin1.7. With cygwin 1.7 there's multi-copy of libuuid delivered,
the win32 copy of libuuid must be explictly linked instead of passing
-luuid flag to linker.
Attached is a simple patch for configure.ac and configure script.
It's better to use the -L flag so that it will still link on Cygwin 1.5.
This will pick up all of the w32api libraries from the new location.
