I moved this to cygwin-xfree list.  That is where it actually belongs.

The SGI OpenGL DDK port to Cygwin has already been done.  It is
at my personal URL at http://siddiqi.webjump.com .  It is based upon
the recent SGI OpenGL Implementation Source Code Release under
SGI OpenSource Project.  It includes static as well as DLLs of
libGL, libGLU, libGlw, libnurbs and libRGB. The port was straight
forward except at a few places you need to fix #ifdef WIN32
which caused conflicts with Win32 API headers in Cygwin.  
Follow the instructions for compliation under Linux, and merge the
SGI OpenGL Implementation code to Cygwin/XFree code base
per Linux for Linux.  Then make World would compile
the SGI OpenGL beast.

Any recent Cygwin Snapshot should do.  I am currently using 

After extraction I rename the i686-pc-cygwin to i586-cygwin32 and copy
everything to H-i586-cygwin32.  This is a crude way of installing
a snapshot to replace your stock B20.1.
