Well, the reality of the situation doesn't seem to be quite that dire. I used the CVS HEAD and I did get it to compile (eventually, with a little work).

I think that the problem was that the configure script partly confused cygwin and some form of Unix. I think that the make file was trying to make the Unix version, but of course configure had configured the windows version. This would explain why I could make them both by hand, even though they wouldn't make automatically.
