I don't quite understand why it's necessary to build Cygwin using pedantic
mode.  Cygwin is certainly never meant to be built in pedantic mode and it's
an annoying mess to have to care for this all the time instead of fixing the
real problems.  If you personally have fun to build Cygwin in pedantic mode,
go ahead, but don't expect that the whole code will be changed to support
it.  If you find real bugs by using pedantic mode, then better send fixes
for those bugs.
