I'm afraid the problem is a bit more complicated because those tentatives to
compile libgda on cygwin were based on glib for MinGW, hence not compatible.
Margus Vali tried then to compile glib for cygwin but, AFAIK, without

See this thread and others around the same time

The most sensible apporach would be, IMHO, to use MinGW, for which glib and
