Not easily.

Mixing Cygwin and MinGW is not such a good idea IME; it gets you into
numerous issues, some of which are quite subtle.  I think building under
plain MinGW works better if you want to avoid dependence on Cygwin's
libraries.  If you switch, be sure to further not rely on installed
libtool libraries (.la files) with paths in the other system's format.

Install MinGW, install Charles' recent MinGW ports of the file command
and some others (posted on this list a couple of weeks ago), use that.
Try to consistenly use w32-style paths on MinGW with forward slashes,
and unix-like ones on Cygwin.

The more experienced w32 users on this list will be able to provide
better help.
