To be more specific, it should be possible to build the mingw version of tcc on cygwin (I don't know, haven't had time to try) but what I would like is the linux/unix version---if it builds on unix, it should be buildable on cygwin---as long as you don't look under the covers to find windows.

Probably you could do that.  It is just that you'll find that
such (almost true) linux/unix version of tcc will produce
(entirely) true linux/unix programs.  And these will not
run on windows, not even under cygwin.

In my experience, the problem is when you do something like
check for windows somewhere and then assume it is windows. If you check for and use unix capabilities, you should find them on cygwin. NOTE: if you then check at the end for something windows specific---everything breaks again.
