Well, I did that last night, build from sources. I did not have the
transport error you mentioned but I had trouble make it build with
gtk2. Turns out I needed to install the pkg-config cygwin package for
vim's configure to find gtk > 2.2. Without it, configure was only
finding gtk-config, which was giving it gtk 1.2 libs.
I'm sorry I cannot help much with your error. All I can say is that
it seems you're missing something in cygwin.
For the record, here's the configure cmd I ran (after installing pkg-config):
./configure --enable-pythoninterp --enable-cscope --enable-multibyte
--enable-fontset --enable-gui=auto --with-features=huge --with-x
