I already said that IMO Cygwin should not add any switches, either.

In any case, the situation with MinGW-w64 is not the same as with
Cygwin: Cygwin has a version of xpm.h that is used with the X GUI and
another one that is used with the w32 GUI.  By contrast, MinGW-w64
doesn't support X, so it doesn't need to have 2 different headers by
the same name in the same include tree.

Did you try the alternative solution I suggested?  If not, please do:
I'm quite sure that it will work, and free you from the need to add
custom -I switches.
