Well, not exactly sure what you're looking for here. Deduction
indicates that you want to be able to build Mingw packages And want to
be able to build them under Cygwin. Not a heck of a lot to go on...
If by, "this package", you are referring to the -extra.tar.gz, you'll
probably need to rebuild it (as you have) using only the mingw
standalone tool set based on the latest release(s) for Mingw. (runtime,
ld, libbfd, win32api, etc.).
Always remember, cygwin and mingw are two different tool sets which
both use a variation of the Gnu C Compiler.
Questions related to -mno-cygwin switch (which may become deprecated)
should only be asked at the Cygwin mailing list.
We do not support the -mno-cygwin switch using Mingw-gcc since Mingw
is a stand alone tool set architected to be easy to install and use
under a non-unixy Operating Systems.
Some of the developers for Mingw are involved with Cygwin, but mostly
that support only extends to the Win32api.
Any modifications to the Cygwin runtime, which may occur in reference
to the -mno-cygwin switch, are "Cygwin Specific" and should be
addressed only on the Cygwin mailing list.
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
