The cygwin.dll acts as an emulation layer for all those POSIX functions 
Windows doesn't have. If a program doesn't call any of the functions 
by cygwin.dll, then, this library is not needed and, I guess, it's not 
even loaded.

GCC, when used on Cygwin, produces always a native executable file for 
Windows, and
the extension is .exe.
