I actually tried QT 4.3 linux packaget, but could not build it could
not find cygwin-g++ in makespec directory. The QT seems only support
minGW on Windows.

I then tried to installed QT 3 as you suggested from setup.exe,  it
got an error "QMAKSPEC" is not defined when calling "gmake -unix -o
Makefile" which was the same command I was running on
linux machine.

Any advice how to use QT 3 under cygwin?

Thank you.
