 If you must have QT 4.3, then you need to pull the source for that over and
 try to build it under Cygwin.

I actually tried QT 4.3 linux packaget, but could not build it could not find cygwin-g++ in makespec directory. The QT seems only support minGW on Windows.

I expect there is some porting effort involved here, though I don't know how much.

I then tried to installed QT 3 as you suggested from setup.exe,  it
got an error "QMAKSPEC" is not defined when calling "gmake -unix -o
Makefile" which was the same command I was running on
linux machine.

Any advice how to use QT 3 under cygwin?

I'm not a QT guru. I haven't dealt with QT for years and even then it was only on the periphery. I guess the first question to ask is whether your project will build against QT 3 under Linux.
