Re cygwin:
Until now I've been building on cygwin without X. I've been working
on the X issues today, and I'll post some patches later.

None of the issues so far are kaffe-specific:

winspool.h uses 'Status' as a structure member, but X #def's it as
an int. One workaround is to include 'toolkit.h' before the X11
headers in clib/awt/X.

<jmorecfg.h> defines INT32 differently than <basetsd.h>
The easy fix is to edit jmorecfg.h
(googling for jmorecfg and int32 shows this to be an old problem)
