When the linker receives a -lBLAH flag, it looks for a file called
libBLAH.a (on Cygwin, also libBLAH.dll.a or BLAH.dll). The Cygwin package
search page at <http://cygwin.com/packages/> shows that "libuser32" is
contained in the w32api package. This means that to compile your program
you need to install that package (using Cygwin setup.exe). HTH,
