configure fails on checking ino_t

download geomview 1.9.5 from http://www.geomview.org
this used to build on cygwin 32-bit. Did so for a number of years. Now, it doesn't,
because something changed.

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

$ tail config.log
#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 

Okay, so what changed in Cygwin?
(No, Mario, this is not an antivirus thing...)
