I would suggest working with the Cygwin people on this.  They are more
likely to be familiar with this kind of issue (which probably comes
from how the autotools work on Cygwin), and if there's a problem with
the current Guile in Cygwin, it would be much better to fix that for
all Cygwin users.

(FWIW, when I last updated a couple of weeks ago, the Cygwin Guile
version was 1.8.2.  I've been using that successfully and haven't seen
any critical problems.  I did see a problem with open-input-pipe
hanging, but worked around that by writing to a temporary file instead
and then re-reading from that file.)
