Hello Noel,

You may as well try to find a way to workaround this problem for your
platform, instead of just removing the offending code (which may break
other things) ...

This is taken from the MSDN library description of

  Windows NT/2000/XP: Included in Windows 2000 and later.
  Windows 95/98/Me: Included in Windows 95 and later.
  Header: Declared in Tlhelp32.h.
  Library: Use Kernel32.lib.

Ok so it is not in WinNT 4... but take a look on this thread from the
cygwin mailing list:


This is a direct link to a message which might help you. You can read
the whole thread if interested.
