It doesn't seem that that is what the documentation tells you to do:

$ ./configure --enable-xml-log=yes --with-tmp-dir=/usr/local/tmp

That seems sane to me; I think the OP's explanation/understanding was
just wrong....

OTOH, that page also has instructions for a "Cygwin minimal
installation procedure to run samhain" that feature instructions to
copy cygwin1.dll and cygminires.dll to the windows\system32 directory,
and that definitely *is* bad advice.
