Compiling a Linux kernel using Cygwin

I tried using the gcc toolchain of cygwin (i.e. no crosscompilation) but the 
following problems still appear (so the problem is not related to the toolchain 

1) make HOST_LOADLIBES="-lintl"

HOSTCC  scripts/genksyms/parse.o
   HOSTLD  scripts/genksyms/genksyms
   CC      scripts/mod/empty.o
   HOSTCC  scripts/mod/mk_elfconfig
   MKELF   scripts/mod/elfconfig.h
Error: not ELF
make[2]: *** [scripts/mod/elfconfig.h] Error 1
make[1]: *** [scripts/mod] Error 2
make: *** [scripts] Error 2

2) make HOST_LOADLIBES="-lintl"  menuconfig

$ make HOST_LOADLIBES="-lintl"  menuconfig
   HOSTCC  scripts/basic/fixdep
   HOSTCC  scripts/basic/docproc
   HOSTCC  scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/checklist.o
In file included from scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/checklist.c:24:
scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/dialog.h:32:20: curses.h: No such file or directory

I'm using a managed mountpoint. Should I mount the mountpoint with the 
--executable or --text options ?

Many thanks for any help,
