This has got nothing to do with Cygwin.  You have some packages
installed that include m4 macros that generate warnings due to
obsolete/improper style.  It should be reported to whoever wrote libsmi,
libmcrypt, cppunit, etc.  You'd get those same warnings on any system
where those libraries were installed, Cygwin or otherwise.

But really it's just a warning, one that you can almost certainly
ignore.  In fact at some point in the past somebody posted a script on
the cygwin list to automate the process of updating the quoting on those
m4 files to silence the warnings.  (However doing that is not an optimal
solution as they will just get overwritten again whenever a new version
of the package is released until such point as the package author
updates the code.)
