Ah, I didn't catch that.  What a shame.

Ugh.  You can download the fonts too, using

   make -C mf get-pfa

That makes sense.  The scripts in lilypond/installers/windows/
configure lilypond using

   CC="gcc -mwindows -mms-bitfields" ./configure --enable-relocation

And this probably is the relocation code.

If you are suing Cygwin, are you compiling -mno-cygwin?  Otherwise you
get a Cygwin application, which is something else than a windows

Hope this helps.
