As you ask for bugs in Perl on Cygwin. I found a second issue in my
"Makefile", the all target:

    all: $(FIRSTMAKEFILE) miniperl$(EXE_EXT) miniperl
$(generated_pods) $(private) $(unidatafiles) $(public) $(dynamic_ext)
$(nonxs_ext) extras.make

I think that is one "miniperl" to much. This did break, when I
compiled with "make -j3".

The error was:

  make: *** No rule to make target `miniperl', needed by `all'.  Stop.

It's possible that this is already fixed in the Cygwin source.
