I think I've got this figured out - it's looking for the _host_ 
libgen.h, which for some reason is not provided under Cygwin.  I googled 
and found a simple workaround that goes into gcc-uClibc.c, this has me 
up and running again.  Erik this might be a useful little patch to 
uClibc to get things going on Cygwin cross-platform setups.  I'll let 
you know when I clean it up properly.

I think the reason I got bizarro errors when I tried to include 
/uClibc/include/libgen.h is that it's for the _target_, not host, gcc.
