At the risk of annoying the open source zealots among us, I have to ask:
Why?  There is no need to build "winsup" when you're trying to build
some other package.  That is definitely not a prerequiste.  All of the
files that you need to build packages are already part of the cygwin
release.  You can't avoid downloading them if you have a working cygwin

Actually, no, it just confuses things.  The problems that you're seeing
are likely do to some bad decisions that are being made in the openswan
code.  You don't need cygwin source code to deal with that.
