The tarball at the perma-link:
is exposing a Cygwin macro definition failure to #undef,
with the test which Bill outlines herein. I provide a copy
to the Cygwin reporting address.

Yup -- I have replicated it locally, when I hit Bill's email.
I get (in ./src. on an unpacked tarball):
$ g++ rph_test.c
In file included from glossary.h:48,
functional.h:213: error: expected init-declarator before '&' token
functional.h:213: error: expected `,' or `;' before '&' token
This on a Win 2000 box fully updated as of this afternoon,
against the Cygwin distribution mirrors.
And so something in the Cygwin macro def's is not
#undef'ing after itself. I assume the Cygwin folks know how
they want a bug report and to track this down?
I'll file it in their bug tracker, and track it with them, if
you'll provide a pointer, Gabriel.
I am used to seeing Corinna Vinschen <vinschen at redhat.com>
post update release notices on the cygwin-announcement mailing
list. In his announcements, he requests reports to:
cygwin at cygwin.com
So I have sought to subscribe there, and file this there, per
the request of those announcemnts.
