You can't do this. If you want to build PowerPC binaries, you have to find
a compiler and linker that is designed to do this. The Cygwin compiler is
built to produce Windows executables.
You can build a PowerPC cross-compiler but it is not an easy task.
Unfortunately this is not the forum for learning how to do this.
http://gcc.gnu.org/ would be one place to start.
