  Argh.  Someone somewher has done "#define sleep Sleep" and it's messing over
the definition of sleep() in unistd.h making it conflict with Sleep() from
winbase.h.  No, hang on, it's even worserer than that:

# 69 "/usr/include/X11/Xwindows.h" 3 4
#define sleep(x) Sleep((x) * 1000)

... leading to this nonsensical declaration:

unsigned __attribute__((__cdecl__)) Sleep((unsigned int __seconds) * 1000);

  Ok, so you can work around that with careful ordering, as long as you don't
want the unistd version of sleep.  Try it like this:

admin@ubik /tmp/x
$ cat test-x.c
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <X11/Xwindows.h>
#include <windows.h>

int main() {
    return 0;

admin@ubik /tmp/x
$ gcc-4 test-x.c  -Wall -lX11 -lcomdlg32 -o test-x.exe --save-temps

admin@ubik /tmp/x
$ ./test-x.exe

admin@ubik /tmp/x
