Well if you don't have w32api installed then you won't be able to
compile anything.  Even for the most trivial of windows programs you'd
need -luser32 and -lkernel32.

That aside, I do agree that it's ugly and unnecessary.  So I patched
configure.ac to not add those when building for Cygwin.  New -3 packages
listed below (sans build logs in -src package.)

BTW, the current curl package has these extraneous -lgdi32 -lwinmm flags
as well, so it appears to have always been this way.
