Cygwin is a 32-bit dll. So all cygwin apps are necessarily 32-bit apps.
And that isn't going to change without a LOT of porting effort. Patches
welcome. But in the meantime, you'll save yourself a LOT of effort by
using pre-built 32-bit cygwin binaries on 64-bit W7, rather than trying
to rebuild everything from scratch, and instead you should focus your
efforts on helping improve cygwin1.dll to be useful as a 64-bit dll.
