I believe that message is about the file src/gnuwin32/Rdll.hide. It is supposed to be sorted, using ASCII collation order. I believe the version in the repository is sorted properly; can you check yours?

We've had some problems with recent versions of Cygwin not sorting properly. The last instance had it put names in the order

  BZ2_bzWriteClose_at_20
  BZ2_bzWriteClose64_at_28

but ASCII order should put @ after 6. Are you using the comm and Cygwin dlls from Rtools, or have you got newer ones?
