I used Anders' last snapshot (+ a few local changes), and it's indeed
missing the C linkage spec needed for C++ code. It looks it's fixed
in Cygwin winsup snapshots, and in retrospect, I should've spent some
time merging those changes in.

I'm assuming Anders will put out a new release in due time, and that
will fix these little problems.
