First, a note: the Cygwin list generally does not like to field
questions about -mno-cygwin because when doing so you are using another
project's toolchain, and so it's kind of off-topic. However, I think
your problem is actually build-environment related and not gcc related,
so I will continue, with reply-to set to the libtool list.

Something here looks rather broken. First, a non-cygwin DLL should
never be named "cygnetcdf-1.dll" because the prefix "cyg" is
specifically used for this purpose, i.e. so that they are never found by
non-Cygwin apps. A mingw DLL should be named libnetcdf-1.dll. So this
makes me think libtool is confused and thinks you're trying to build a
Second, dllcrt2.o is a mingw startup file and should be present in
/usr/lib/mingw. If not then you certainly have an installation
problem. Confirm that you can compile and link a hello world program
with "gcc -mno-cygwin" before continuing.
It would help if you would post more details, such as how you configured
the package. When trying to build a mingw package under Cygwin you are
in effect cross compiling, so the configury should probably look
something like the following, although there are many ways to skin a
./configure --host=i686-pc-mingw32 --build=i686-pc-cygwin CC="gcc
(And if you use C++ then CXX="g++ -mno-cygwin", and so on.)
