You can't load the cygwin DLL statically, no.  The best you can do
is use mingw if you don't want to rely on the cygwin DLL.  Mingw
builds rely on DLLs that should already be on most systems.

It is not theoretically impossible to create a "static" version of
cygwin.  DJ Delorie has done this, with some hacking at the cygwin
source code, but there is no way to do this in the current sources
and I would very much not advocate even attempting it.
