P.S. cvs 1.12.12 compiles fine on the same machine.

Sun 25 Jun 2006 09:44:48 AM UTC, original submission:

I just tried to compile cvs 1.12.13 on cygwin. It fails to compile getaddrinfo.c, there is a similar report on the cygwin mailing list (http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2006-03/msg00204.html) which suggest to replace getaddrinfo.c with something newer from gnulib. It doesn't seem like the report made it to cvs support channels until now. I never had problems compiling cvs on cygwin.
