Most strange comment I have read... With your reasoning why bother with 
cygwin at all for any reason?

I do cross compiling all the time in cygwin and the reason is of course 
to not have to deal with windows paths and what not plus you have access 
to all the build tools like make binutils grep sed autotools.
