I went ahead and applied the patches and configure at least

a reason for this ( or do I have a larger fundamental problem and
applying these patches just lets configure run longer)?

When patches are included you can assume:

1. The original pristine sources from upstream are included.

    2. Any patches provided need to be applied to the pristine
       source to get things building for Cygwin.

ok that's fine it seems to be building but I ran into the function pointer
problem that I mentioned in other build and none of the patches
apparently fixed it so I just changed it.

Of course, if there's a cygport script there, you shouldn't need to worry about any of this. Just run it. See:
