How to compile vim so that the server feature works?

I want to run vim in servermode.
I need the +clientserver feature for this to work, so I have to
compile vim myself.

I have done this but servermode does not work.

this is what I have done

$ ./configure --with-x --with-features=huge --enable-luainterp
--with-luajit --enable-pythoninterp --enable-python3interp clean
$ make && make install
$ where vim
$ which vim
$ vim --version

$ /bin/vim --servername foo

Unknown option argument: "--servername"
More info with: "vim -h"
$ /usr/local/bin/vim --servername foo
# starts vim

new bash instance

$ vim --serverlist

no foo server listed

What do I need to do to get that feature working in cygwin?
