win32/Apache - not following Cygwin symlinks

I couldn't get Win32/Apache 2.2.10 to follow symlinks which were made in Cygwin, (with either CYGWIN=nowinsymlinks or not), and Options FollowSymLinks on Windows Vista. To get around it, I used the Junction tool from Microsoft, (Sysinternals). Just remember to reverse the order of the arguments, as compared to ln.

Doh! Just found mklink. It appears to be junction, no...?

Ahhh! Cygwin doesn't see mklink, that is why I didn't find it earlier :P
