Re: ino_t and d_ino now a thing again?

on attempting to build Geomview 1.9.5 on current updated
Cygwin, configure fails oddly:

checking for time_t... yes
checking size of dev_t... 4
checking size of ino_t... configure: error: in `/home/lloyd/savi/geomview-1.9.5':
configure: error: cannot compute sizeof (ino_t)
See `config.log' for more details

lloyd@box ~/savi/geomview-1.9.5
$ tail config.log
#define HAVE__BOOL 1
#define HAVE_STDBOOL_H 1
#define HAVE_M_PI 1
#define HAVE_DEV_T 1
#define HAVE_INO_T 1
#define HAVE_TIME_T 1
#define SIZEOF_DEV_T 4

configure: exit 77

If HAVE_INO_T is 1, getting sizeof should be a non-problem.

check the exact reason of the failed test in the config.log .
I have similar issue and it is due to the antivirus locking the test
file too long.

Is this a reoccurrence of the 2006 d_ino problems that were an issue for Cygwin
1.5.19, and discussed with Eric Blake?

thanks and regards
