If you follow the directions in the recent thread (i.e.
forget about configure and just manually edit your
header files), it will compile with zero warnings :p

What what release of Cygwin?  Probably not b20...
I've used older versions without trouble, but b20
is defintely screwy (hence the 'b' in b20 for BETA ;)

You shouldn't need an /etc, since that is for server
startup and initiailization files.
And even with a proper /bin dir setup, it still doesn't
work.  There are definitely some bugs in the new
