The problem may actually be quite simple -- we may be lacking 
  -nostdinc -I<path_to_w32ap_include> 
in the Makefiles. The -B<path_to_newlib> only handles the newlib
includes, but the w32api headers are still coming from your
installed tree.

I remember running into this when I had an older version of w32api
and gcc installed, and tried an one-tree build. I should dig it
up and submit a patch for it.
