Thank you for your help.
I have successfully eliminated those two error
They were caused by the ACE make include files.
In those include files, there are some checking for
library, such as
PLATFORM_AIO_SUPPORT := \
$(shell test -e /usr/lib/librt.so && echo
I commented out those checking related to librt.so*
then those error message went away.
I don't know whether Cygwin should include those lib
or ACE should remove those checking.
Anyway, a progress was made.
