Hi, after a *lot* of installing of cygwin dependencies, I've got Lilypond
built in the 64bit environment ...
...and this assertion is not thrown (at least not for the 2.19.49 head -- I
suspect it's unlikely anything's been fixed since 2.19.48).

Interesting, but perhaps not a surprise, since a Cygwin build is probably
rather closer to running on native Linux than mingw.  Back to the drawing
board, I think...
