Perhaps keep -Werror for Cygwin sources only where we can directly deal with new 
warnings generated due to prompt gcc releases with improvements under Cygwin 
(thanks to Achim and JonY).

With other distros' gcc releases lagging, package builds are getting more 
warnings during cygport builds, which would have to be dealt with either by more 
Cygwin patches and/or working with upstream, by toggling off -Werror, or 
specific -Wno-... options which could result in suppressing useful output, as 
well as delaying package releases.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
