I believe you may ignore this warning from stdbool.h.

It sounds like cvs is managing to include one of the broken Windows
versions of the 'mkdir' instead of the POSIX function. You want to
have a prototype like this:

  int mkdir (const char *path, mode_t mode);

rather than a mingw prototype...

Which version of cvs are you trying to compile?

Which verison of cygwin are you using?

I would expect the correct prototype for mkdir in sys/stat.h
does your config.h have a '#define HAVE_SYS_STAT_H' line in it?

You might wish to add a '-E' switch to the compilation of add.c
and see the output of the C-Preprocessor (save it to a file).
to determine from whence the mkdir declaration is being pulled...

        Good luck,
