Problem building CVS-1.10.x

Not that this helps your compiling problem but do you realise that the
Cygwin client binaries (I have only used the CD ver) will handle Unix-based
source-code, i.e. no end-of-line conversion.
I use (on Win2k, fat32) the std CD version of cvs (Ver 1.10) with pserver
and SSH (Ver 1.2.27) from Sergey Okhapkin site.
