On my test machine (Win7 64, Cygwin 64) I get the errors shown below.  
But first let me ask...

If you don't mind my asking, do you mean for the day, for a couple 
weeks, for ever, ???


Here is the tail end of the ./configure output:
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.exe
checking for suffix of executables... .exe
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ISO C89... none needed
checking whether gcc understands -c and -o together... yes
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking dependency style of gcc... gcc3
checking for library containing dlsym... none required
checking OpenSSH version... 6.9 >= 4.4, disabling NODELAY workaround
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for SSHFS... no
configure: error: Package requirements (fuse >= 2.3 glib-2.0 gthread-
2.0) were not met:

No package 'fuse' found
No package 'glib-2.0' found
No package 'gthread-2.0' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables SSHFS_CFLAGS
and SSHFS_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

The following shows I have glib2 installed.  I can't find a gthread 
package for Cygwin.  I've compiled cygfuse; what cygport command will 
satisfy the package reference for configure (newbie question this)?

$ cygcheck -c | egrep 'fuse|glib|gthread'
libglib2.0_0       2.46.2-4      OK
