What CVS source do you have? What compiler do you have? You need to have
gcc-2.95.2 to handle anonymous unions.

Check the following output: 

  $ make VERBOSE=yes

and post what you get to the cygwin-developers list (*not* here). Before 
you do that however, make sure your CVS tree is up-to-date.

Looks fine to me. What is this puzzle exactly?

It works now, and has worked for a while. There may be occasional
instability in the development sources, but that's part of using
development sources.

Issues dealing with building Cygwin development (CVS) sources belong in
cygwin-developers list, where these issues are discussed and solved.
