What I ment was latest version was I installed it
about 2 days ago using the latest setup.exe that is
being distibuted with..

and I yeah I took the code from another server and
have deleted the config.* files and ran configure
again. I've also tried what the WTFAQ suggested.

I believe I have installed cygwin correctly as I have
had other things compile on it without a problem and
with the new setup method they use it is fairly hard
to get it wrong..

I'm not have any luck compiling tho.. I removed what
you suggested but then I get a million other errors
