Sorry but, what reply do you expect? The error message is very
likely caused by a datatype not known by Cygwin. You changed the
Makefile to define __WINDOWS__ and __WIN32__. That's not the best
way to build a Cygwin binary since the package could use these
defines to include different headers and such. When compiling for
Cygwin, try the pure unixy way first. And you're talking about a
header `crypt.h'. You know that a header with that name already
exists in Cygwin, don't you?
