If your app is looking for loaded extension  Then no you would need
to compile and load.

It is possible to statically compile glx.a and link against it.  That si
what I mean.

If you are looking for DRI, then again no.  DRI/DRM would not work on
with or without Cygwin.  DRI/DRM is strictly glued to Linux kernel headers
and upto a great extent to 3dfx for Linux.

I do not think hardware accelerated OpenGL rendering can be done on Windows
using Cygwin
and OpenGL/DRI/DRM code in XFree86 4.0.  Therefore I see no need to spend
time on it
unless someone starts a project and write a WGL exquivalent of GLX drievr...
check oss/
for more details.  It requires writing a new API.
