Thanks for pointing this out.  It dawned on me yesterday that the
reason I didn't see these problems is because I don't build with X
support on Cygwin.  Once I configured in X support, I saw these errors
and a few others.  It took me awhile to work out the right changes to
make, but I have checked changes into the XEmacs 21.4 mercurial
repository that enable XEmacs 21.4 to build under Cygwin with X

One problem remains - Xaw3d support does not work, so I removed that
from the configure line.  The problem I found was that XEmacs seemed
to be expecting version 8 of Xaw3d, but Cygwin supplies version 7.

I still plan to release 21.4.23 in the near future, but I would
recommend making an updated XEmacs 21.4 kit before that point.
