'gcc' is the compiler. Run 'setup.exe' and install the "gcc-g++" or more
simply just install the entire "Devel" category.

mingw is the Windows-targeted version of the compiler tools. It doesn't
use Cygwin. You can install the Cygwin-provided pseudo cross-compiler by
installing the "gcc-mingw-g++" package or the entrie "Devel" category.

See <http://cygwin.com/> for a definition. Again, install with 'setup.exe'.

Then perhaps you are already there.
