Berkeley license

I would like to use CYGWIN to compile a C program that is under the
BSD license (with the advertising clause).  It has been modified by
another party, so it does not fall under the blanket lifting of the
advertising clause done by Berkeley.  Can I use the free CYGWIN version,
or do I need the proprietary-use license for the CYGWIN library?  (What is
the cost of such a proprietary-use license?)  In either case, am I allowed
to distribute executables created with CYGWIN, and may I give out the
CYGWIN.DLL with it - or do users of my program need to get CYGWIN.DLL by

Thank you,

Konstantin Strauch
