I never built Hatari on windows/cygwin, but i doubt that building in an xterm, 
using the default gcc, is the correct way. That would produce a binary that 
needs a X-server to run.

You will probably need a pure mingw compiler. On older cygwin version, this 
could be achieved by just adding -mno-cygwin to the compiler flags. On newer 
installations there are separate packages, mingw64-i686-* when using the 64bit 
version of cygwin. Be sure to install all the libraries that might be neede by 
Hatari, if the configure script can't find the one i needs it might otherwise 
fallback to the cygwin libraries, which is not what you want. Basically this 
is handled by cygwin as cross-compiling, even if you can execute the resulting 
binaries on the same machine.
