I did (5.005_002  static build, 91.4% successfull test).

As many people from this list helped me, I'd glad to offer the same. 

Basically, 

*) Read the README.cywin32

*) Edit the hints/cygwin32.sh file to reflect your paths.

Here are also a couple of settings I found useful when performing automatic
build (copy hints/cygwin32.sh to config.sh, and do sh Configure -d)

usedl='n'
i_stdarg='define'
i_varargs='undef'
osname='cygwin_nt-4.0'
osvers='20.1'
archname='cygwin32'
signal_t='int'
d_voidsig='define'
i_sysselct='undef'
signal_t='void'

*) Browse Usenet archives (DejaNews), and find  "HOWTO: Builiding Perl
under Win95/98 using Cygwin32 "

comp.lang.perl.misc

*) Then apply this patch (Thanks to Todd Goodman)

This is my change in Cwd.pm:

     unless (@cst = stat( $start ))
     {

And tell me (email) if it fails.
