you dont need anything from Cygwin for MinGW, that was one of the reasons it was created in the first place...that stuff on the wiki regarding stealing bits here and there from cygwin is misinformation... for some rare thing that isnt in msys or the DTK like PNG/JPeG lib needed by gridflow, you can get pure-win32 ports at gnuwin32.sourceforge.net

i do remmeber sometimes the included make would screw up but if you copied /bin/mingw32-make.exe to /bin/make.exe after installing it worked nicely..
