How do I run a program compiled in cygwin from a program that is running in a Windows CMD shell?

Well, on a different machine, I installed cygwin fresh, including the mingw 
development tools for the 64 bit target, but that did not bring any joy: when 
the resulting test executible is invoked in a windows CMD session, it 
complained it could not find "libgcc_s_sjhj-1.dll", and in a bash session, it 
ends without any output (which means it dies before the extensive output is 
generated, but without producing messages about exceptions or any reason why 
the program died.

Are these cross compilers mature?  I would think that if they produce binaries 
that need libgcc_s_sjhj-1.dll, it, or whatever package that contains it, would 
be identified as something the cross compilers depend on.  I do know that that 
dll is not to ne found on any of my machines.

I guess I may have to live with the cygwin/bin directory being added at the 
end of the PATH environmental variable.
