A potential solution is, add another user to your system named cygwin.
When you build you packages use the cygwin user. The debug information
will reference your cygwin user, and not your real user account.
Thanks for the suggestion, but there are other solutions meanwhile. Also, you would have
to remember to switch user everytime, which may take a while, and it's not even possible
to create user accounts on everybody's machine.
You're the only one that needs to remember, and it's only your machine that would need the
the user account. Other people building the package don't have the same … requirements …
you do. They're not distributing what they build. They would just use the cygport and be done
with it.

(Not selling the solution as I have no opinion on it, just pointing out that neither of those
objections are really a problem.)
What I wanted to point out with my last objection is that some people may not be able to create an account as they like, in an enterprise environment.
