I configured with 
LIBCERF_CFLAGS='-I/usr/local/include' \
LIBCERF_LIBS='-L/usr/local/lib -lcerf' \
../gnuplot/configure --prefix=/opt/gp510 --without-qt --with-caca --with-readline=builtin

I do not why configure add -lcerf.
LIBCERF_CFLAGS='-I/usr/local/include' \
LIBCERF_LIBS='-L/usr/local/lib -lcerf' \

memcpy and other functions are correctly recognized 
and make was went well.
But libcerf was not recognised.
This is gnuplot issue but not the Cygwin.
I will be back gnuplot ML and leave from the Cygwin list on this matter.
