issues compiling and migrating exe / dll files

Hi all.  I'm trying to do the following and running into some 

1.  Install cygwin on a host computer (works).
2.  Compile a set of binaries and dll's using gcc/make (works).
3.  Sanity check that the binaries actually run and execute 
properly (works).
4.  Zip the compiled binaries and dlls, then unzip on a different 
cygwin install (works).
5.  Run the compiled binaries (some of which use the dll's) (does 
not work on some systems).

Instead of working , the claim is that the binary actually ends 
execution and does not show up in the running process list through 
cygwin (ps -ef).  The exectuable in question does call the 'daemon' 
system call, which may or may not be the source of trouble here.

Aside from removing that daemon call and running in the foreground, 
the only other options I can think of would be to provide the full 
source package and have the end user compile the package 
themselves; however, would prefer to only hand out binaries in this 
case if I can help it.

Questions for this list:
1 -- is the migration method used above supported by cygwin?
2 -- any idea what can cause the termination of a program in this 
3 -- any other thoughts?

Thanks in advance; if there is an FAQ or other thread that covers 
this please just post a link.
