/usr/include is for cygwin apps.  If you add -I/usr/include you subvert
the normal operation of -mno-cygwin by including cygwin-only header
files which is *specifically* what -mno-cygwin is avoiding.  The system
include area for -mno-cygwin is /usr/include/mingw.

The same applies for library files.  The system area for libraries when
-mno-cygwin is active is /usr/lib/mingw.

(This is a simplification because it isn't exactly like this for gcc 3.2
but it is close enough)

In any event adding a library path to /usr/lib or an include path search
to /usr/include is *asking for trouble*.

Did you send a bug report or patch to the mingw mailing list?
