Keep in mind that building sourcenav under Cygwin is
still "on the cutting edge", so you should expect to
have some problems. The build process is well tested
under Linux, not so much under Cygwin.

Try setting CFLAGS="-g -mno-cygwin" and then rerun
./configure. That should get rid of the #include
problems, but it is likely there are others
lurking in there, so you might need to do a bit of hacking.
The build support under Cygwin will be much improved
in the first development snapshot for 5.0.
