... in Cygwin 1.5 (doh!)
In Cygwin 1.7 it's 192 lines.

In line 157 of /usr/include/wchar.h there's the declaration of wprintf.
I suspect there's a

#define wprintf tf_wprintf

in Tinyfuge somewhere. This sounds like a bad idea and it finally bit
you: there is no wprintf in wchar.h of Cygwin 1.5, but there *is* one
in Cygwin 1.7 and now it clashes with Tinyfuge's macro.

I'd suggest removing the wprintf macro in Tinyfuge and manually
replacing all occurrences of wprintf with tf_wprintf.
