undefined reference _ext2fs_get_device_size2

    I'm trying to install gearman under cygwin. One of its dependencies is libuuid so I'm now trying to build e2fsprogs.

    I've set environment variables CC, CXX, CPPFLAGS, LDFLAGS, & LIBS.
    CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/win32/include -I./lib/ext2fs
    LDFLAGS=-L/usr/win32/lib -L./lib

    I'm running ./configure -with-gnu-ld;make

    The output I get is

    make: Entering directory `/cygdrive/c/tmp/e2fsprogs-1.41.12/e2fsck'
            COMPILE_ET prof_err.et

    make: Leaving directory `/cygdrive/c/tmp/e2fsprogs-1.41.12'
    make: ***  Error 2

    I think the header file should be ext2fs.h which is in ./lib/ext2fs, hence the references to ext2fs in my env variables. This doesn't make any difference and I'm not sure what else to try.

    Any suggestions as to what I might have missed out would be much appreciated.
