N00b question regarding Cygwin and delay loading

TLDR: I am trying to use delay loading with Cygwin. Is it supported?

I have found information that I can do something along the following lines:

	gendef NATIVE.dll
	dlltool --input-def NATIVE.def --output-delaylib NATIVE.dll.a
	gcc -shared -o cygNAME.dll -Wl,--out-implib=libNAME.a NAME.c NATIVE.dll.a

However the messages that I get back say that I am missing the symbol
__delayLoadHelper2. Which actually makes sense. But where is Cygwinâs
delayimp.lib? Is there even one? Or am I supposed to somehow use this with
MSVCâs delayimp.lib? Or perhaps this is just a MinGW feature and not
supported on Cygwin?

Thank for any help. Full (failing) make output below:
