You may also find the instructions under

useful.  I set this up and it worked for me, although I haven't played with 
it since I downloaded and installed the new mingw packages via setup.exe, 
so I don't know if they corrected things or not.

Best bet would be to follow the exercises in the instructions above, and 
when you get to the C++ version of if it fails to link then 
install the extra bits it suggests.  (After using setup.exe to make sure 
your cygwin installation is up to date of course.)
