I don't know the answer to your question.  But it appears you might be 
building in the same directory that holds the Cygwin source.  That won't 
work.  You should be following the recipe in the FAQ, located here...

Note that the list of required build tools shown there may be a little 
different for such an old release, so beware.  But the main point is to 
set up a build directory like /oss, with subdirectories /oss/build, 
/oss/install, and /oss/src.  What I tend to do is define a symbolic link 
/oss/src that points at the directory containing the Cygwin source tree, 
/cygdrive/c/cygwin/cygwin-1.7.0-58 in your case.  Then cd to /oss/build 
and run configure and make like the FAQ entry describes.  Good luck!
