arm-eabi-gdb.exe requires the following Cygwin DLLs:

C:\cygwin\bin\cygwin1.dll
C:\cygwin\bin\cygexpat-1.dll
C:\cygwin\bin\cygiconv-2.dll
C:\cygwin\bin\cygintl-8.dll
C:\cygwin\bin\cygncurses-8.dll
C:\cygwin\bin\cygz.dll

So if any of these DLLs don't exist in your own Cygwin installation,
that could explain the problem you are observing. If you have installed
all the packages listed on the above page and still don't have all the
DLLs you need, please let me know which one(s) are missing in your
installation.
