This was exactly the reason why I wanted to compile the new version - to be able to delete the old cygwin1.dll. I had no idea that this old DLL was used by anything else apart from the old sitecopy. When I deleted cygwin1.dll, the compilation succeeded!

You're welcome.  But you shouldn't need to recompile sitecopy to use a 
newer cygwin1.dll.  Just delete the old cygwin1.dll and replace it with the 
new.  sitecopy.exe will see the new one (worked fine for me when I tried
it with cygwin 1.5.5 installed).
