Regardless of your ascerbic comments, adding the compiler flag -fpermissive
seems to have solved the problem.   Cygwin's version of gcc seems to be 3.4
on my system whereas my Linux box is running 4.4.  Maybe this is something
that got relaxed between the two of them?  Whatever the explanation, the 
exact same code compiles fine under Linux/gcc4.4 without needing that flag.
Maybe it wouldn't have done under Linux/gcc3.4?
