I've found the culprit. I installed the perl LWP module which
installs a HEAD script that fetches the header of an URL.
On unix HEAD and head are different but on cygwin having
both HEAD and head.exe along the path causes a problem...
After removing the HEAD script cygwin_libid reports x86 archive import
So maybe cygwin_libid should call /usr/bin/head.exe instead
of just head?
