No one really cares about building from the cygwin source tarballs, because
they prefer to build from cvs, because building from source tarballs is
broken, because no one really cares about building from the cygwin source

Hmm - it seems that configuring in the same directory as configure is
broken, because no one does that .... you get the idea.
tar jxvf cygwin-1.3.21-1-src.tar.bz2
and, it breaks because winsup/w32api is missing. That's because that is the
w32api package, released seperately. So install that package in the relevant
place in the source tree? Well, no, because no released version of w32api is
sufficiently up-to-date to build cygwin 1.3.21-1. Ouch.
So, you should probably build from a cvs checkout. It will make your life
