[mercury-users] Getting the cygwin version to run on windows

I have installed cygwin, gcc, & mercury. I even have the path set to include the correct directory for mmc.
Unfortunately the cygwin shell does not recognize mmc, mdb, etc. probably because of the file extension -- running 'sh mmc' seems to start up the compiler, although I have not run any compiles yet.
Is there a shell setting or environment variable required for the shell to pick up the mercury commands?
It is really hard to get mercury going under windows. Is there any work on a port that does not require cygwin? Perhaps if mercury can compile itself to the ECMA common language runtime (AKA the Microsoft .net common language runtime) cygwin won't be required?
