Sorry, I don't know, as I don't use Cygwin.  However, if the Cygwin ACL
functions are compatible with Solaris's, it should be easy to modify the
Gnulib code to use them on Cygwin too.

I think I asked the wrong question. It's clear from looking at the Gnulib sources that Gnulib supports Solaris ACL functions on Cygwin. But emacs doesn't use these functions. AFAICT, fileio.c only uses ACL functions on systems that have POSIX ACL functions. So the Gnulib code doesn't help. Or am I misunderstanding something?
