That's true, but this fact is irrelevant to the current discussion.
One can, indeed, use Cygwin to build a native Windows port of Emacs,
but such a build does not use Cygwin libraries and therefore cannot
use the Cygwin ports of X libraries and of GTK+.

IOW, such a build simply uses the Cygwin GCC and Binutils to produce a
binary that is linked to stock Windows runtime libraries, just like
the MinGW ports of GCC and Binutils.

Therefore, the problem you found in the Cygwin build wrt GTK+ and its
use of memalign can never happen in the native Windows build of Emacs,
no matter if that native build used Cygwin GCC or any other compiler.
