MinGW64 GCC is a cross-compiler.  It builds native Windows programs, 
which are a rather different thing than Cygwin programs.

Development packages for the native cygwin compiler generally do not 
provide anything usable for the cross-compiler.  It would be wrong for 
the MinGW cross-compiler to find them.  If it did find them, very little 
in terms of useful results could possibly come of it.
