Then post the file to the dev mailing list with the subject "[PATCH] Fix 
for build under cygwin" or something relevent.

Someone with CVS commit access will then (hopefully) have a look at your 
patch and commit it (if it's coded well enough) or ask you to make some 
changes prior to it being included in CVS.

from me will be forthcoming fairly soon!
