After doing a fresh checkout a few hours ago, I got the following build

    gcc ... ../../../src/libiberty/strerror.c
    ../../../src/libiberty/strerror.c:465: warning: static declaration for `sys_nerr' follows non-static
    ../../../src/libiberty/strerror.c:466: conflicting types for `sys_errlist'
    /home/jt/src/cygwin/src/newlib/libc/include/sys/errno.h:21: previous declaration of `sys_errlist'
    make[1]: *** [strerror.o] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jt/src/cygwin/build/i686-pc-cygwin/libiberty'
    make: *** [all-target-libiberty] Error 2

I was able to workaround the above by applying the attached patch.

Is this cockpit error?  Or, does CVS currently not build?
