Thanks for the report.  This can happen if an old wint_t.m4 is used.
Did you build directly from the tarball?  Did you run any of autoreconf,
autopoint or libtoolize?  Make sure wint_t.m4 in your build tree is
'serial 11'.  See some comments in bootstrap.conf..

I don't have access to a cygwin machine so I can't easily reproduce this
myself.  One thing you can check is the ./configure output: does it
contain 'whether wint_t is large enough'?  Otherwise something rebuilt
the ./configure script for you and used the wrong wint_t.m4 file.
