I have problem compiling the current cygwin cvs release

habacker@BRAMSCHE ~/src/
$ make
gcc -c -gstabs+ -O2 -MD -fbuiltin ... glob.c
../../../src/winsup/cygwin/glob.c:156: parse error before `*'
../../../src/winsup/cygwin/glob.c:156: warning: type defaults to `int' in
declaration of `g_opendir'
../../../src/winsup/cygwin/glob.c:156: warning: data definition has no type or
storage class
../../../src/winsup/cygwin/glob.c: In function `glob3':
../../../src/winsup/cygwin/glob.c:590: `DIR' undeclared (first use in this
../../../src/winsup/cygwin/glob.c:590: (Each undeclared identifier is reported
only once
../../../src/winsup/cygwin/glob.c:590: for each function it appears in.)
../../../src/winsup/cygwin/glob.c:590: `dirp' undeclared (first use in this
../../../src/winsup/cygwin/glob.c:590: warning: statement with no effect
../../../src/winsup/cygwin/glob.c:591: parse error before `int'

A workaround is to add the following to glob.c:

#include <cygwin/sys/dirent.h>

BTW: This problem occurs with too before I updated newlib today morning.

2. On linking the cygwin dll the following file is used from the libiberty:

If one configure libiberty for using with ld the function strsignal() isn't
because configure finds a defined strsignal.
If libiberty is shared between cygwin an ld/binutils, than there is a problem.
