I'm not sure I am getting that reply. The gcc-core package is only a
compiler, and I am talking about the "gcc" binary contained within.
The example I am showing is technically using only the w32api-headers,
trying to use the win32 api as described here:

Right, but that isn't the same thing. I am well aware of the various
issues tied with sizeof(long), otherwise it would have taken me a lot
more time to understand what was going on here. I am talking about the
fact that the cygwin-provided w32api-headers package doesn't properly
work with the cygwin-provided 64 bits gcc. Unless I am mistaken
somewhere, this isn't an issue with the example code. This is an issue
when trying to compile a 64 bits binary that uses the win32 api,
