I believe this might be related to the above discussion so I thought I would 
add this - I updated my cinstall (Setup.exe) node from HEAD in cvs (cvs update 
-rHEAD) on Monday and now when I try to compile on my Win2000 laptop I get the 
following error:

I have tried reinstalling the w32api packages for version 1.1-1, 1.2-1 and 
1.2-2 as well as other various packages in an attempt to resolve but still get 
the same error when I compile.  

I see the patch that Ton van Overbeek and I am about to try that - will this 
become a standard patch.
