Are there some special settings to make this useable in mintty? I've been trying to move the cursor around in a dired, but obviously it doesn't recognize this yet.

M-x xterm-mouse-mode

In this release, for the first time, I've been able to build Cygwin's
emacs-X11 with all of the upstream defaults.  In particular, the build
uses GTK+-3 instead of GTK+-2, and it supports GNOME's GSettings and
GConf features.

Would it be possible to build emacs-X11 without Gtk and provide emacs-Gtk as an additional package, like some Linux distributions do?

I'm not sure what you mean by "without Gtk". Do you want some other X toolkit, such as Lucid or Motif? Or no X toolkit? What would be the advantage of that? The emacs build uses Gtk by default, so I would need a good reason to do something different on Cygwin.
