Do you actually need a cygwin dll, or are you just trying to get a 
normal (non-cygwin) cairo dll?  If the latter, the win32 build pieces 
should be mostly set up already; see README.win32 in the toplevel cairo 
source directory.  Note that this builds with Visual C++; the free 
Express edition works if you don't have Visual Studio.
