Yes, it is. (As part of my largest commit this week-end).

Configure detects (or can be told through --without-x) that X11 is not
available.   Consequently we don't build the X11 parts in src/
(e.g. graph, hyper).
However, I just discover that I did not commit the corresponding
part for src/lib.  Before you waste your time trying, let me correct
that part first.

the reason I chosed to use cygwin for the host and build machine is
that it provides some POSIX/Unix functionalities that I'm not sure I
have under mingw, and on the other hand I can convince GCC to generate
mingw binaries from cygwin.  It was not for the X11 stuff.
