OK, I'll throw my hat in the ring... :,)

I recommend using Cygwin in -mno-cygwin (aka Mingw) mode for the
following reasons:

    1. Using Cygwin gcc -mno-cygwin mode produces native Win32
       applications (i.e., do not depending on the Cygwin DLL)
       that are not affected by the Cygwin license.

    2. Using Cygwin as the Win32 build environment will facilitate
       keeping the Unix and Win32 build environments as similar as
       possible.  For example:

           a. Posix path can be used for both environments
           b. symlinks can be used for both environments

    3. Cygwin provides all the necessary tools (e.g., bison and flex).
