You can still find the last Platform SDK that integrates with Visual Studio 6 here

Have a nice day

I updated my cygwin installation but that didn't help.

I followed the link for the MS Platform SDK but it states VC 6.0 is not

Development Tools. To build the C/C++ samples, you must have a C/C++
compiler. If you are using Microsoft Visual C/C++(r), run it at least
once before installing the SDK. This will ensure that the environment
variables are correctly configured. To build the Visual Basic samples,
you must have Microsoft Visual Basic(r). This SDK does not support
working with Microsoft Visual C/C++(r), 6.0 as support for VC 6.0 has
ended. The last SDK that will work with VC 6.0 is the February 2003
Edition, you can order a CD on the fulfillment site. Side by side
installations are not supported.

So unfortunately I'm still stuck.
I have tried, clean, distclean, setup, all, again but to no avail.

That just seems to have the standard VC6 includes, replicated
3 times for good measure!  There is no sign of the SDK includes there.

Personally, when I used VC6 I always built with the SDK includes.  The
VC6 toolchain and standard includes were so old it was
essential, certainly for my day job.  However, I see the
Developers Guide claims that it isn't required.  I'd be
interested to know if the buildbot (which still uses VC6) has
the SDK installed.  Maybe Gerald can comment.

There have been a number of changes in the makefiles since
0.99.4 so that might account for your difficulties.
