[Mono-dev] Cygwin build - warnings about arguments gint32 vs LONG

There seem to be a large number of warnings generated during the
Windows/Cygwin build relating to the type of arguments provided to
various support functions.

The functions seem to be mostly prototyped in platform includes such as


The warnings are of this flavour

/usr/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/include/winbase.h:1796:24: note:
expected 'PDWORD' but argument is of type 'guint32 *'

I have been experimenting with declaring some of the prototypes within
the build environment instead of in those platform incldues but there's
so much of this I am at a bit of a loss as to how to proceed.

I am now wondering if it is better to pull in winbase.h / winsock2.h and
rewrite them to take the gint* style. I'm not terribly keen on that idea.

That or maybe there's a way to make gint32 and friends appear as LONG
and the equivalents and so forth, although that also seems less than ideal.

Can anybody advise on a sensible way for me to approach this?
