Yes. If you use mingw you are not using the cygwin dlls at all.
Maybe you should read the descriptions of both projects to decide which
 you want to use. If you want to port software from unix i think using
cygwin is easier (that means don't use -mnocygwin)

Include the needed header files. There should be no problem as both are
standard C++ Library functions if i remember right.
