Has anyone recently compiled pnet/pnetlib/treecc on cygwin? When I
configure treecc, I get this error. Its probably my fault, but if
someone could tell me what's wrong, it would be much appreciated.

I too had this problem a while back, but unfortunately never got to the root cause. I had some correspondance with someone who had the same kind of error doing a build for a completely different application, he only solved it by re-installing Windows! No thanks, that's not the way to do it.

I've basically given up on that for now, unless a few people make a bug report I don't think much will be done at Cygwin.

FWIW, it seems to be related to the version of Cygwin, my status is as follows, compare and contrast (as they say):
