And nobody wonders about the *.so filename?  There's no librt on Cygwin,
and even if there would be one, it would be called librt.a or librt.dll.a.

Note: Cygwin is not Linux.

Your problem is elsewhere.  Why does ls try to find /lib/* at all?
Is that a Makefile which is too Linux-centric, maybe?


P.S.: A subject of "please help" and only a bare minimum of details are
not very helpful and especially not catching a lot of attention. 
I encourage you to read
