I just searched the archives, and it turned out that the problem is
known since at least September 2011.  Unfortunately our maintainer of
the gmp, mpclib, and mpfr packages, David Billinghurst, never replied to
the problem report from Dave Korn.

I Bcced David, but if David has moved away from Cygwin, we will need a
new maintainer for the aforementioned packages, plus ppl and cloog-ppl.
