Other people have answered the technical aspects of your question but I
wanted to remind you that if you are supplying a cygwin DLL you still
have to abide by the GPL. That means that you need to make the source
code for both your program *and* the cygwin DLL available under the
terms mentioned at http://cygwin.com/licensing.html.
