Hello, I do not have a cygwin system to check, but the patch below
should fix this bug.

Thanks for your report!

I am afraid there are lots of similar bugs (missing extern "C"). If we
want to support libpari build with g++ we need to declare _every_
public symbols (functions or variables) as extern "C", else the
resulting library does not define the same symbols (due to mangling) so
has a different ABI from the standard one. We should probably wrap
definitions of global symbol with a macro. Alternatively we can
define _every_ public functions in either paripriv.h or paridecl.h.
