The snapshots are close to being b21.  The problem as stated before in this
thread is that you need to get the appropriate libraries and headers installed
as well.  Download the latest cygwin-inst-YYYYMMDD.tar.gz and use those headers
and libraries to build your applications.  NOTICE: Even though the runtime
(cygwin1.dll) is backward compatible the objects and libraries are not.  If you
rebuild a binary you must rebuild all dependencies as well.
