"gcc -mno-cygwin" should work.  If you had an older Cygwin, I'd've guessed
you're linking with a "-lm" flag, but that should be fixed now.  As it is,
though, it's possible that you're explicitly linking one of the
Cygwin-dependent DLLs.  Try running "cygcheck yourapp.exe", and see what
it depends on.  That should tell you what you've linked in that's pulling
in cygwin1.dll.

If not, please provide the exact compile and link lines you're using to
build your executable.
