I haven't used any special configure flag and it compiles fine on
my box. Don't know what's going on.

The settings on configure:
../src/configure --prefix=/usr --exec-prefix=/usr \
                 --bindir=/bin --sysconfdir=/etc \
                 --libexecdir=/usr/sbin --host=i686-pc-cygwin \
                 --build=i686-pc-cygwin --target=i686-pc-cygwin
