library supports on Cygwin - Xerces-C

Some light on the following question is highly appreciated.
Those ready to lend a helping hand, please raise your hands... :-)
Does Cygwin have shared library support?
If yes, where can I get the information on using a shared library in Cygwin?

Hope I could explain my problem. Did anybody had a similar problem in past?
Thanks in advance for any tips / solutions.
