I couldn't rebuild from src, because the .cygport seems to think that
libmangle should already installed (and, according to your second
message in the ITP: libmangle thread, libmangle *should* be included in
/this/ build, instead).

Maybe the "updated" -src package doesn't include the latest .cygport?
This change fixed it:
-CYGCONF_ARGS="--without-headers --without-crt --with-tools=gendef
+CYGCONF_ARGS="--without-headers --without-crt --with-tools=gendef
A few other minor points:
1) Once the issue above is resolved, you can probably remove this line
from the cygwin-specific README:
(and, it should have been 'libmangle-devel' anyway).
2) You're downloading a LOT of stuff that you don't actually build. The
.tar.xz for mingw-w64-tools is 117K and mingw-w64-libraries can't be
much bigger, but the whole snapshot you are using is 4.2M. This slows
down a lot of stuff, like the prep, cygautoreconf, and mkpatch steps.
I tried to figure out get just the source you need via 'inherit svn' --
but had to give up, since you want two *separate* subdirectories of the
top-level (mingw-w64-tools and mingw-w64-libraries), and perhaps the
top-level files, but you wouldn't want to recurse into the OTHER subdirs
of top-level. Yuck.
cygport just can't handle that, so I guess we're stuck...
