Recent cygwin update is missing tchar header file

Hi,

I usually build aircrack-ng under cygwin and it works fine. However, due 
a recent update (in the w32api package I guess), it doesn't compile 
anymore and here is the output I get (latest version from aircrack-ng 
subversion repository: r2563):

make -C src all
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/Thomas/aircrack-ng-trunk/src'
make -C osdep
make[2]: Entering directory '/home/Thomas/aircrack-ng-trunk/src/osdep'

Basically, in one of the files included in an include in aircrack-ng 
(/usr/include/w32api/oledlg.h:28:19), there is a reference to tchar.h. 
That include doesn't exist and it breaks compilation. As I said, it used 
to compile just fine and this happened recently as you can see on 
another post: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.os.cygwin/153244/
