You might either enable an ELF-Target in your Cygwin gcc/binutils or you
can just disable the target builds (CONFIG_IMAGE_*). Then you only end
up with the "Unix hosted binary" which should also work fine on
Windows/Cygwin. My Windows underwent some user aided self destruction
recently, but I'll have a look as soon as I get to this.
