Cygwin's jpeg is built with the lossless jpeg patch, which modifies the
header files slightly. However, if you read the header file carefully,
height_in_blocks is in the PRIVATE section of the header. It is NOT
supposed to be accessed by external programs -- I have this on the
highest (for jpeg) authority, Tom Lane himself.
So, don't do that.
But, if you must do that, height_in_blocks has simply been renamed to
"height_in_data_units" -- because with lossless jpeg, each "compression
unit" is not necessarily a DCT block.
Please search the mailing list archives where this has been discussed in
the past. IIRC several mechanisms for working transparently with the
cygwin versions of the jpeglib headers were presented in those discussions.
