Absolutely.  There is no reason why building with -mno-cygwin package
would have any effect on any Windows DLLs unless you attempt the
standard thinko of trying to mix cygwin and non-cygwin DLLs or
libraries.  You can't do this by default but if you add cygwin libraries
to the gcc command line you can get into trouble.
