That's an odd combination, an ancient version of Cygwin with a new gcc
(which you probably built).

Why are you configuring like a cross-compilation?

None of that should be needed to build a package that is to be used in
the current version.

Configure usually shows "Target: x86_64-pc-cygwin", but yes the log also
shows "host='x86_64-unknown-cygwin'".  Anyway that is using configure
without any build, or host parameter.
