I want to compile C code under Windows 8.0.0 on Windows (XP, SP3) using 
the Cygwin gcc compiler.

But how do I get a version of that compiler that does not require 
cygwin.dll? A search shows only installing gcc as a package under Cygwin 
setup, which seems to mean that cygwin.dll is required -- and the 
Mathematica docs say that version won't work.

FWIW, I do have the path to the Cygwin /bin directory on my Windows PATH 
environment variable. And I even tried to have cygwin running. But 
still, the CCompilerDriver doesn't seen to recognize this version of gcc.

There may just be something, or two somethings, that I'm not putting 
together to get this to work.
