Thanks for the patch. It fixes that failure but there's another in localeconv.c:
newlib-cygwin/newlib/libc/locale/localeconv.c: In function '__localeconv_l':
newlib-cygwin/newlib/libc/locale/localeconv.c:47:10: error: 'lconv' undeclared 
(first use in this function); did you mean 'lconv'?
    return lconv;
I think that this is because the lconv is declared and used
   struct lconv *lconv = &locale->lconv;
#endif /* __HAVE_LOCALE_INFO__ */
   return lconv;

That's easy to fix but I then get failures in time/strftime.c for__get_time_locale:
newlib-cygwin/newlib/libc/time/../time/strftime.c: In function '__strftime':
newlib-cygwin/newlib/libc/time/../time/strftime.c:701:48: warning: implicit 
declaration of function '__get_time_locale'; did you mean 
'__get_current_locale'? [-Wimplicit-function-declaration]
    const struct lc_time_T *_CurrentTimeLocale = __get_time_locale (locale);

I also get errors for the use of era_info_t and other types in that function
newlib-cygwin/newlib/libc/time/../time/strftime.c: In function 'wcsftime':
newlib-cygwin/newlib/libc/time/../time/strftime.c:1446:3: error: unknown type 
name 'era_info_t'; did you mean '__ino_t'?
    era_info_t *era_info = NULL;
But I haven't been able to track down what causes those.
