I just tried compiling MySQL 5.0.22 (with 
configure-options --without-server, --without-extra-tools). All three steps 
(configure, make, make install) completed without errors. I tried compiling 
a test program and it was enable to connect to a running (Windows native 
version) MySQL server on the same machine and create a table and insert a 
tuple. My Cygwin is fully updated (1.5.20). So this is a false alarm, yes.
