This has been changed back in December 2000 when the RTEMS specific
header files have been merged into newlib mainline headers.

Unfortunately the ChangeLog doesn't give any hint why STRICT_ANSI has
been disabled while doing that.  Many of Cygwin's headers are not
STRICT_ANSI compatible anyway, so we don't really care for this.

You should send this to the newlib ML and ask for a clarification.
I *assume* the STRICT_ANSI can be re-enabled nowadays.
