Not so obvious at all.  How do you suppose I could generate a snapshot
if that was true?

If you can't check the source, why are you responding?

Since I can't see any reason for the error, I assume that the source
has been locally modified or the header files are screwed up.

Basically, it seems to me that if you can't solve simple things like
basic compilation errors, you probably shouldn't be building cygwin
from scratch.
