Many (most?) Cygwin users create a mount point for /bin and similar
directories.  Your symbolic link will work too, though it may not be as
efficient as a mount point, since the mount table is always accessible in
shared memory.

There is a stdio.h all right (a simple file search will turn it up), but
not in the conventional location of /usr/include (just as sh isn't found
in the conventional place either).

The gcc compiler doesn't need /usr/include, it knows where to find its
include files, but you seem to have an atypical Makefile that looks for
stdio.h itself.

Again, you should be able to work around this with a suitable symbolic
link or mount point.

No idea.  Never heard of popt.  Building from source is certainly an
