This isn't PD software, it is GPL software.

To build Cygwin you must do so in a separate directory from the src
directory.  It is covered in the FAQ.

You need to follow the CVS checkout directions posted at first.  Then make your changes to
winsup/cygwin/  Then do the `cvs diff -up' from
that directory.  Note, do not copy your changed 1.1.8-2 version of to src/winsup/cygwin, you need to merge your changes with
the other changes that exist.
