So Pascal's version does work fine for our the current case.
The second word from (lisp-implementation-version) is also a hint
=> "2.33 (2004-03-17) (built 3288528537) (memory 3304787349)" but also
quite fragile. Whenever Sam build the cygwin and native version at the
same day it will fail.
Sam should know which function is better to get the at the build_os string.
(machine-version) is almost the same. (just "PC/686" for win32)
(machine-instance) doesn't help since both are the same.
