  cygcheck vim

Make sure that you export PATH 
and that it contains all necessary  cygwin's  (and mightbe windoze's) paths.
Your cygcheck.txt looks good up to possibly "L:" and "C:\WINDOWS.0\...."
Also try reverting to standart minimal PATH or put all unusual paths
to the end (including /usr/local/... and stuff like Hacking).

If that fails, try 'depends', or start plain windows cmd console, and try 
  set PATH=c:\cygwin\bin;c:\cygwin\usr\bin    (plus nothing more or
something, or ;%PATH%)
  gvim          (gvim, not vim )
Outside of cygwin, windows might report missing DLL's.

Does this help?

Salvage your /etc/profile from /etc/defaults/etc/profile
