This is mostly a guess, but are you running the build as Administrator (you shouldn't), or does Cygwin for some other reason (broken Cygwin /etc/passwd file?) think you are root (in the Cygwin sense)? Check what the Cygwin "id" command outputs. It should say that you are a "normal" non-root user.
If Cygwin claims you are root even if you aren't Administrator, or member of the Administrators group, the Cygwin /etc/passwd and/or /etc/group files might be broken. Repair with mkpasswd and mkgroup.

This comes from tar thinking you are root and thus tar wants to chown the files to the uids/gids in the tar archive. (When run as a normal user, tar doesn't do that.)
Please tell us if any of the above was helpful...
