It may, but then again it may not ;-) Mingw, which is what mno-cygwin
implies, uses MS runtime which lacks lot of the POSIX goodies that we
take for granted in Cygwin. If libwww doesn't use it, then you're fine.
However, unless someone has ported the networking code to use MS-style
Winsock instead of POSIX/BSD sockets, then the obvious answer is no, it
doesn't work using -mno-cygwin.

It's somewhat irrelevant whether it's plain C or C++ or F77. The only
way you can get cygwin.dll-independent output *in* Cygwin is to use
the Cygwin compiler in the mno-cygwin mode. Please see my writeup
on the various issues involved in using -mno-cygwin:
