/usr/share/doc/Cygwin/cygutils.README tells you what's needed to build 

An alternative to building cygutils would be to improve your original 
problem report so that you might be more likely to get help on this 
list.  For example, you wrote "By running those commands manually, I 
think the problem is the last, /bin/mkshortcut, line."  But you didn't 
say what happened when you ran that command manually.  You also didn't 
attach the cygcheck output requested at
