Yes that did it. The problem was definitely caused by virus scan - McAfee. Not sure why, but excluding the folder from on-access scanner did not get rid of the error. Only by completely disabling Access Protection and On-Access Scanner in the McAfee console was I able to complete the configure script for ImageMagick on my Cygwin installation.
Thanks for the help and hope this will help others who encounter this problem.
What helps your system even more is deinstalling McAfee as it seems to take a really safe but really dumb approach which slows Cygwin and Windows drastically, unless you add a LOT of exclusions. Then you can enable Windows Defender, and download and install Microsoft Security Essentials if you are still on Win 7/8: Win 10 Defender includes MSE functions so it is not required there. -- Take care.
