It sounds like you want to use MinGW ( rather than Cygwin. When used in conjunction with the MSYS shell environment, MinGW allows building normal WIN32 applications with no dependence on anything but standard WIN32 DLLs.

everyone´s answer primarily seems to be ¨run Cygwin¨.
Unfortunately, Cygwin is not an option for me as I
can´t tell my clients to install Cygwin to use my
product. (They´d go to someone else.) Same applies for
Microsoft´s SFU, and UWin.

It would be nice to use those environments except that
the problem is they introduce dependancies due to the
environment. I want to run the tool chain natively in
Windows so that I don´t have to maintain a VC++ setup
in addition to my Unix tool chain. (And I´d rather
avoid the batch files and other stuff as well.)

Does anyone know of a project that could help solve
the problem? I guess, I am primarily looking for a
non-intrusive cmd.exe replacement for Windows 2000
