It looks like cvs is using an older version of gnulib's getaddrinfo.c
replacement module, which until recently has had some bugs when used on
cygwin (I know, because those same compile errors were present in CVS
coreutils, prompting the fixes in gnulib). As a workaround, you may be
able to just drop in the latest copy of getaddrinfo.[hc] from
ask upstream at the cvs development list for them to pull in newer files
from gnulib and spin cvs 1.12.14.
Life is short - so eat dessert first!
