Can't this occur whenever:
1) We distribute an updated cygwin1.dll and <sys/types.h>
2) Some package XXX with XXX.dll and with XXX.h including <sys/types> is 
   NOT updated
3) A user compiles an application using package XXX

For example:
/usr/include/zconf.h:#  include <sys/types.h> /* for off_t */
/usr/include/zconf.h:#  include <unistd.h>    /* for SEEK_* and off_t */
/usr/include/zconf.h:#  define z_off_t  off_t

Any other?
