Just to be clear, does the above mean that configure ran successfully?

The above shows that compilation is failing on the very first file,
so that indicates to me that your Cygwin environment is suspect.  Please
post the following versions:

    gcc (including the port (i.e., the number after the "-" in the tarball))

Also, gcc "parse errors" have indicated text vs. binary mode issues with
older Cygwin gcc versions.
