In short: if you want to use Cygwin's posix emulation layer then you
will be linking to cygwin1.dll and your program will be GPL. There's
no way to statically compile an app that still uses the emulation layer
but doesn't depend on the DLL. You can compile a mingw app of course
with the -mno-cygwin switch, but the amount of unix-like functionalty
that's supported is very much a subset of what you get with Cygwin. If
this is what you want then you need to ask your question on the mingw
 Unless you pay Redhat for their commercial license.
