Is this to say that a static build is not supported?

The magic is called www.mingw.org.  This is the cygwin mailing list.
The -mno-cygwin option is added as a (regrettable) convenience for
people who want to build non-cygwin apps.  It basically produces
a mingw application.

If you are having a problem with -mno-cygwin then peruse the
mingw information.
