cygwin parrot-0.7.0-1 released

[ #37260 ]

After several days of hacking and testing I could release the cygwin package for parrot-0.7.0 with a lot of patches:
See http://code.google.com/p/cygwin-rurban/source/browse/trunk/release/parrot/

Problems:
The new exception code only affected dotnet, which I fixed with #58176-dotnet-exceptions.patch

Most problems came from languages which were not included in my huge #56554-make-install-lang.patch yet. make languages installable and add the actions to their makefiles.
I finished this treatment now for all langs, just a few are still misbehaving and I gave up on m4, pipp, tcl, pheme and forth.

I described it at http://www.perlfoundation.org/parrot/index.cgi?parrot_installation

Interesting is

$ parrot-forth
Could not find non-existent sub _config
current instr.: ' init' pc 944 (forth.pir:11)
called from Sub 'main' pc 1033 (forth.pir:55)

which looks like that pbc_to_exe already solved the _config bootstrap problem, but fails.

$ parrot-pipp.exe
Parrot VM: Can't stat /usr/src/perl/parrot/parrot-0.7.0-1/build/languages/pipp/s
rc/common/pipplib.pbc, code 2.

current instr.: 'parrot;Pipp;__onload' pc 55 (src/common/pipp.pir:95)

$ parrot-pheme.exe
