I've finally tried building on cygwin 1.5; --enable-gcc-warnings exposes:

savedir.c:43: warning: declaration of 'path' shadows a global declaration

in gnulib, and this in main.c:

main.c:1628: warning: passing arg 2 of `rpl_getopt_long' discards
qualifiers from pointer target type

but ignoring errors, the build completes, so I don't see those as

Also, the generation of [ef]grep.1 is noisy, even with 'make V=0',
although that's cosmetic.

Cygwin 1.5 actually passes more tests than cygwin 1.7 (namely, the
gnulib tests for btowc), but that still says that the bug is in cygwin
1.7, not in grep (and maybe that gnulib should work around it in the
meantime, but such a workaround would only affect cygwin, where I
already have some influence on the grep port).
