That would be nice.

Cygwin doesn't use glibc or ldconfig. In fact, you don't need to have a
seperate C library package, because the C runtime is part of cygwin1.dll.

Well, there can't be any Cygwin binary packages on rpmfind.net, because they
don't exist yet. Or do you mean source packages?
Note that most packages tend to require at least a small patch for Cygwin,
so even source packages won't be directly useable without some tweaking.
