Normally, /usr/lib is searched BEFORE /usr/lib/w32api. The patch caused
w32api to be searched before /usr/lib.

libuuid.a is known to exist in both directories, with the *nix version
in /usr/lib and the import library for Windows in w32api. The w32api
copy is completely unrelated to the *nix version. This break cygwin apps
that expect to link against *nix libuuid.
