/usr/include/cygwin/in6.h:75:8: error: redefinition of âstruct in6_addrâ
note: originally defined here

Don't know this file but this is a bug in config.h.  struct in6_addr
is defined in a system header, so it should not be gratuitously defined
in a project header, especially if the definition collides with the
right one from the system header.

Mmm, but here it's w32api definition vs cygwin definition.

Maybe I didn't read it exactly, but the bottom line here is, when
building for Cygwin, either use the POSIX network headers (preferredly),
or use winsock.h.  Mixing them is not supported.

Yeah, though this case is a bit buried, so it's not obvious.  Also the code
is from 2008, so I expect it has suffered some bit rot over time with
respect to Cygwin.  In any case, it looks like removing iphlpapi.h from
sysdep.c solves the problem.
