Cygwin is more than just a library. You can't build cygwin programs
with MSVC because MSVC will use the MS runtime; you need to use gcc to
use the cygwin runtime. Plus, cygwin isn't a .lib and probably never
will be a .lib. It's a .dll.
You can, however, use LoadLibrary to load the cygwin DLL and manually
initialize it and call *some* of its functions.
