I ran into the same problem with glib.h missing today, and I think there
may be something wrong with win32-setup.sh (or the current cygwins cygpath):

I think the line that causes trouble is this one:
DEST_PATH=`cygpath --dos "$2"`

I added some code to make it more verbose:
	echo "cygpath --dos $2"
	DEST_PATH=`cygpath --dos "$2"`
	echo "DEST_PATH is now: $DEST_PATH"

Now the output of "nmake -f makefile.nmake setup" contains these lines:
...
cygpath --dos C:\wireshark-win32-libs
cygpath: cannot create short name of C:\wireshark-win32-libs
DEST_PATH is now:
****** glib-2.12.4.zip ******
No HTTP proxy specified (http_proxy and HTTP_PROXY are empty).
Downloading gtk2.8/glib-2.12.4.zip into , installing into glib
File `glib-2.12.4.zip' already there; not retrieving.

I have seen this behaviour just after a cygwin update; maybe this
changed the behaviour of cygpath.
