Part of the new cygheap changes that cgf recently checked in, were a
number of changes/tweaks to the linker script.  It's possible that your
checkout happened in the middle of those changes, or you didn't get them
all.  Try a recent checkout.  (If you are already using an up to date
tree, then ignore this...)
