Ahhh..., which is the message you wrote "it is on unix"?

If it is the message that configure immediately prints after
the execution (and before checking compilers etc):

>The following settings are used:
>  platform                    unix
>  compiler                    cc
>  configuration directory     ./builds/unix
>  configuration rules         ./builds/unix/

Please do not care about it is unix. For first, the platform
in above message is the hosting platform, not the target platform.
And, even if the platform is set to unix like above, it does
not make the compiled binary to unix. The autoconf will tune
appropriately, even if the beginning message says as unix.

The background of the failure in apinames.exe would be that:
apinames.exe is compiled as MinGW binary and it cannot handle
the cygwin pathname (/cygdrive/c/ is cygwin convention. C:...
should be used for MinGW). What we should do? The apinames.exe
should be compiled for cygwin environment, not mingw environment.

Checking your config.log, it seems that the project is not
configured for cross-building correctly:

configure:3013: checking whether we are cross compiling
configure:3021: x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc -o conftest.exe  -I../../base/include 
-L../../base/lib conftest.c  >&5
configure:3025: $? = 0
configure:3032: ./conftest.exe
configure:3036: $? = 0
configure:3051: result: no

In summary, please try

        ./configure --host=x86_64-w64-mingw32 --build=i686-pc-cygwin --with-zlib
        --prefix=/cygdrive/c/Library/base CPPFLAGS=-I../../base/include

(the difference is "--build=xxx")
