Hi Frank,

Sorry for the late reply.

I have modified the lines

  #ifndef _WIN32


  #if !(defined __CYGWIN__ || defined __MINGW32__)

so you can compile it.  I will rewrite the locking facility using
`fcntl' rather than `flock' for portability.

I talked to a person who is working on the Cygwin port of open-cobol,
and he said this problem might be caused by the GMP library.  If you
use GMP 4.1.2 with the "gcd_ui.c.retval.diff" patch, which is included
in Cygwin, you will see the above error.  If you install GMP manually
without the patch above, you can avoid the error.

I am not sure why this error happens.  I personally do not use
Cygwin and cannot investigate it.  Please let me know if you find
a real solution to this problem.
