ISC DHCPv6 Server?

Has anyone built the ISC DHCPv6 server on Cygwin?

I downloaded the latest source, dhcp-4.2.4-P2, saw that it contained
some checks for __CYGWIN__ and __CYGWIN32__ and tried "./configure"
and "make" but make failed with the following.

    make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/dhcp-4.2.4-P2/dhcp-4.2.4-P2/common'
    gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../includes  -I.. -DLOCALSTATEDIR='"/var"'    -g -O2  -Wall -Werror -fno-strict-aliasing -I../bind/include -MT alloc.o -MD -MP -MF .deps/alloc.Tpo -c -o alloc.o alloc.c

It is the end of the day so I have not yet investigated those
errors.  I was hoping more to find someone here who had already done
this than to get help with the make process.  For now.

Before downloading the ISC source, I searched the web to see if
anyone had built this on Cygwin, but the latest work I could find
was a patch to dhcp-3.0.1rc11, which does not support DHCPv6.
