I found another way: leverage the llrint() implementation in MinGW.

a) We need first to download the mingw-runtime Cygwin package.

b) Then we create a small library:

ar x /usr/lib/mingw/libmingwex.a llrint.o
ar cq /usr/local/lib/libllrint.a llrint.o

c) And finally, we use that library in FFmpeg configure line:

 --extra-ldflags='-L /usr/local/lib' --extra-libs='-l llrint'

It might not be the most elegant solution, but it is strightforward, and 
it works.
