I suppose it's because on linux, HAVE_FOPENCOOKIE would be set and this
code would be skipped.  It was only when HAVE_FOPENCOOKIE was not
defined but HAVE_FUNOPEN was that it tried to include the typedefs.  The
HAVE_FOPENCOOKIE codepath was unusable on Cygwin because it assumed
presence of <libio.h> when fopencookie() is present, and while newlib
has fopencookie() it has no such libio.h.

I haven't looked at CVS autogen but Bruce said he was going to fix both
of these issues so hopefully this is all resolved now.
