Yes, I added the patch and all worked fine. emacs-21.3.tar.gz was made
before that change of gcc. If you want to build emacs with newer gccs
you need that fix, otherwise you will get the errors as discussed.
IIRC that patch was added to the RC branch.

If this is possible, I don't have a problem with that. My only problem
is that the current emacs-21.3.tar.gz _sources_ in a actual cygwin
environment are useless. You will always get discussions about the
problem. Are there any plans to distribute the RC branch. That would
fix the problem too.
