Show the relevant portion of config.log, that shows the program that
monit attempted to compile, and the compiler error.  Most likely it is a
bug in monit's, and not in cygwin.

Yes, cygwin's compilation of vsnprintf is supposed to be c99 compliant.
 But without seeing why monit claims it is not, I can't state
definitively if that is the case, or if monit has turned up an actual bug.
