Don't know if in this case outdated info is better
than no information at all. However, I'd tried 
porting gnupg-1.0.0 awhile back. Got at far as the
follg. undefined "WinMain@16" error, and did not 
pursue further due to Werner Koch's warnings that
not having a well-formed way to /dev/rnd on Win32 
makes such a port disingenuous.

>> Just a summary of the results so far..
   (1) The gnupg-1.0.0 port to cygwin-b20.1 needs 
       GCC 2.95-19990728+ from Mumit, 
       cygwin32_ipc-1.03 from
       or .
   (2) In cipher/rndunix.c, modify 
       to <signal.h>. Comment out the sys/ipc.h & 
       sys/shm.h includes.
   (3) ./configure --target=i586-pc-cygwin 
   (4) Define HAVE_STRICMP config.h, & make -d to
       get the "WinMain@16" errmsg below..
       >> In function `main':
undefined reference to `WinMain@16'

Hope this helps,

I can't remember by reasoning now but I think it was
to stop it
attempting to build the Unix and Linux RNG modules.
I've just tried
again, starting with:

./configure --enable-static-rnd=egd
