If I understand correctly what you're trying to do, you need to obtain a
commercial license from RedHat for doing so.  Otherwise, if you ship
binaries linked against cygwin1.dll you need to also include all sources
(for Cygwin and your own application) with each such shipment.

You need to read the license for Cygwin:

Alternatively, why don't you just package your application with cygport
and offer it to be included with the distribution?
