Urgh!  cygwin/regex/regex.h:

  typedef off_t regoff_t;

This means, the current Cygwin from CVS is using a 64bit regoff_t while
the applications linked against up to 1.3.22 are using a 32bit regoff_t.

FWIW, I think it's not necessary to actually have 64bit regoff_t so I'd
think changing the typedef to always 32 bit

  typedef _off_t regoff_t;

will be ok.  Or am I wrong?
