As cgf mentioned, no.  And in a way it doesn't make sense.  If you link
against Cygwin libs, why don't you just create a Cygwin application
(apart from the obvious licensing issues)?

What you *can* do is to find a native ncurses implementation on the net,
or, which is much less work and just a little bit more effort code-wise,
use some libtermcap with a termcap file.  Building libtermcap natively
should be pretty simple anyway.
