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?
