Really.  That was it?  Well, that's pretty non-intuitive.  Nice job finding

I doubt it.  Cygwin provides POSIX APIs that VS doesn't so the mere existence
of Cygwin indicates that there's not going to be such an overlap.  Also, 
Cygwin's header files are it's own.  It's not a big surprise that they 
contain specific info that's not understood by VS.  The reverse is also 
true.  You'll need to build your own set of function declarations and 
needed symbols, etc.
