Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to build Emacs on Cygwin. I use the platform as a test bed
because of Newlib. Emacs is failing with:

Forgive my ignorance... Should this question go to the Newlib folks?

Good thinking, but in this case, no.  The problem (*iff* there is any)
and the potential fix would only affect Cygwin headers.

As I said in https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2017-10/msg00144.html, this is
almost certainly the same gnulib issue that has already been fixed
(http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnulib/2016-03/msg00054.html). The OP
is probably building old emacs sources that hadn't incorporated the fix.

Yeah, I saw that, Ken, but thanks for pointing it out.  I was
talking about this more in a theoretical way :)

Ah, OK. My main reason for writing was to CC the OP, since his latest email suggested that he hadn't seen any of the replies.
