I can't find any resolv.h in my cygwin directory.. Do i need to download 
any sources of cygwin to get it?
I did find a message [1] on the devel-list about the same problem. When 
i apply the patch to srv.h make works a bit longer, however after a 
while it still gives an error, but now a different one.

I'll try compiling GnuPG using MingW.
