Bug report:

When compiling using gcc 2.97.43 and the Cygwin snapshot from 1999-8-31
I get an incorrect success when building code which contains both
h_errno and netdb.h.  My program compiles and links perfectly rather
than giving me the correct error!!!!

What the heck is the deal here???  This failed to compile perfectly on
Ultrix 4.2!!!  Has anyone else seen this problem??
