I released a new Cygwin TEST version 2.5.0-0.8.

If things are not going very wrong, this is basically what you'll
get as 2.5.0-1 release.  Please, please test and report regressions.

Does this release include Yaakov's overhaul of the feature test macros?

Sorry, I completely forgot to metion this in my release mail, which
is especially weird because I created this test release to allow testing
the new feature test macros in the first place.  Sorry!

The problem I reported in has reappeared.
It looks like your fix
( got reverted.

The commit message for removing the include did not indicate what
prompted it.  However, the include is necessary for BSD compatibility,
and other software fails to build without it.

I would look into emacs and see what feature test macro(s) they enable
on *Linux*, and use the same for Cygwin.

Might this be it?

There's some seriously hackish things going on in that file, some of them Cygwin specific. As far as this is concerned, our headers should be no different than glibc.

BTW, folks, I'm here to help deal with any fallout from these changes, but this is going to be the first answer to such issues: others need to stop making hackish, wrong, or outdated assumptions about Cygwin. Yes, that means pushing some patches to undo this mistreatment, but nothing new there. As of today's 2.5.0-0.8, it should only considered a bug in our headers when something does not compile if and only if Cygwin is treated identically to glibc.
