This problem is probably due to using incompatible versions of the cygwin DLL.
Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
and delete all but the most recent version.  The most recent version *should*
reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have
installed the cygwin distribution.  Rebooting is also suggested if you
are unable to find another cygwin DLL.
Segmentation fault

Unfortunately, this is not a problem, per se, within mkshortcut itself. It's a system issue; make sure there are no other cygwin1.dll's on your system or in your $PATH. Finally, you could try manually running rebaseall in your 64bit installation, and then rebooting.
