Glad to help.

I just added a cygwin-binutils-devel package with the necessary headers
and static libraries.
The only trick is you need to manually
remove /usr/i686-pc-cygwin/lib/libiberty.a so that the "correct"
libiberty.a is used instead until I have the chance to rebuild

I tried that at first, but it didn't work. The problem is with
$ i686-pc-cygwin-strings /usr/bin/i686-pc-cygwin-ld.bfd | grep w32api
So this code isn't sysroot-safe. PTC.
