If you want to use mingw versions of berkeley-db, posgresql, pcre, etc.,
then go ahead and install those versions.  -mno-cygwin is not so magic
as to ignore correctly installed libraries.  You just have to put the
libraries and headers in locations that are searched when -mno-cygwin
is used.  Those locations are distinct from the locations used when
-mno-cygwin is not provided -- for frighteningly obvious reasons.

"/usr/i686-pc-mingw32/include" and "/usr/i686-pc-mingw32/lib" would be
the place to put the headers/libraries.

/usr/include/mingw is also searched for the header files.  I don't
remember if /usr/local/lib/mingw is searched for library files.
