This looks like way too much code duplication for me to be comfortable with
it.  Every time we make a change to something in dcrt0.cc we'd have to
remember to change it here, too.  I'm also changing some of this for
some work in making cygwin thread safe.

What was the reason why you couldn't just call dll_crt0, again?
