Cvs update and now no Compile of winsup -- need HELP

Thu Apr 19 09:02:00 GMT 2001

Well, it has happened to me again.  I updated my cvs of winsup and 
cinstall and as usual after I do an update I can no longer compile 
changes.  This has happened before for one reason or another and after 
several days we finally resolve it but I have no clue on this one.  I 
thought it might be something new from gcc-2.95-3 or make so I made sure 
I had all the current versions using setup.exe but still no luck.  I have 
deleted my install directory and my build directory and have attempted to 
rebuild all from scratch (which usually seems to get me going again) but 
still no luck.  I am getting an error now on winperf.h which is a new one 
to me.  Being a beginner on C++ and trying to learn while working on 
setup.exe I am at a loss what is wrong.  

I could really use some guidance and help.  This is a show stopper for me 
- I have no ides!!!!

I have enclosed the error from the make, the script I use to configure 
and compile my cygwin, a cygcheck -v -s -r, and a printout of my 

Error from make:

build script:

#!/bin/sh -x
#eg  my dir structure is
#/e/src/cygwin/  == $cyg
#The first time you use the script, it should build the whole tree, after
#which, it should only build setup.
#tested on win2k, gcc version gcc-2.95.2-9 2nd edition and cygwin-1.1.8
#Note, this is just a modified "Chris build script" and has been posted
#Hope it helps
