Normally that might work but in this case it misses the point, as the
whole purpose of this perl module is to dynamically invoke the C++
compiler at runtime to compile the inline C++ bits in the script.  And
if it's invoking the compiler wrong it makes this essentially useless as
all the stuff it feeds the compiler is dynamically generated.

But I agree that this is a bug somewhere in the module, and is not
related to Cygwin or gcc.  Looking at its sources it seems to have the
proper logic to use g++ for linking and/or adding -lstdc++ so I would
suggest you need to contact the module's author.
