I had the same problem with ncurses, and in the config.log file found out that the ncurses.h was not being found.
I manually changed the configure script line
#include <ncurses.h> to ---> #include <ncurses/ncurses.h>
and configure got past that.
The next and what I expect to be the last configure error is now related to the Gnu Scientific Library (GSL)
configure can't find gsl-config and indeed there is not any.
and there is no gls-dev package on the cygwin site.
Is this an oversite? Or is there a gsl-dev development package and a gsl-cofig program in a pklace I can't find on the cygwin package repository?
