There's no firewall involved if a simple socket call goes wrong.
For AF_LOCAL Cygwin opens an AF_INET socket, but which is unbound
until you call bind or connect.

I tried this myself and it works for me:

  $ uname -srvm
  CYGWIN_NT-10.0 2.4.0(0.293/5/3) 2016-01-15 16:16 x86_64
  $ cat <<EOF > sock.c
  #include <sys/types.h>          /* See NOTES */
  #include <sys/socket.h>
  #include <errno.h>
  #include <stdio.h>
  #include <string.h>

  int main()
    int fd = socket (AF_LOCAL, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
    if (fd < 0)
	fprintf (stderr, "Can't create socket: %d %s", errno, strerror (errno));
	return -1;
    printf ("Success\n");
    return 0;
  $ gcc -g -o sock sock.c
  $ ./sock

You don't need to install the source package.  When you installed the
cygwin-debuginfo file, the debug files are installed into /usr/lib/debug/
and the sources under /usr/src/debug/cygwin-2.4.0-1/
