Sorry to not get back to you sooner. I haven't got B20 installed here, but
it looks like Cygnus dropped the 32 from various symbols in this release, so
you might just need a patch like the following:

RCS file: /u2/cvsroot/abi/src/config/,v
retrieving revision 1.41
diff -u -r1.41
--- 1999/01/08 17:35:44 1.41

ifeq ($(OS_NAME), CYGWIN32_95)
+ifeq ($(OS_NAME), CYGWIN_NT)
+ifeq ($(OS_NAME), CYGWIN_95)

Basically, just do a 'uname -s' from your cygwin command line to figure out
what string you need to match (up through B19, it was either CYGWIN32_NT or
CYGWIN32_95) to get the build system working.

Let me know if that does it for you so that I can update the CVS trees. If
not, then we'll try to get B20 installed and see what else is needed.
