I setup cygwin64 on windows 10. Thanks to your tips I update to i686* tools 
 I add to static link libgcc, libstdc++ and also add -static lpthread to get it 
 Artefact are huge now but I was able test some code to check for jdk9 

 The remaining issue are:
 how  to generate the platform-launcher-9.0beta.zip and launcher.zip,
 how to populate the external binaries repository with those artefact

We keep a zip of C:\cygwin from a set of cygwin files that worked to build the 
I notice that my NetBeans is set up to
use C:\cygwin\bin\i686-w64-mingw32-g++.exe
when building from the IDE.

You were asking if someone had a working setup. Would more information and/or 
files about this process help you personally?

Kind Regards,

Johnny Muczynski
