It will require OpenAL to be installed separately.  I just did it

distributions install it by default (Fedora doesn't), so it may
already be there.

The "win" directory seems to be MSVC specific, so Jon's fears about a
cygwin build are probably justified (the linux directory won't build
in cygwin: you want the Win32/DirectX implementation, not the OSS/ALSA

There is a link to a binary SDK available from Creative, though, so
presumably cygwin users could use that? I believe cygwin can link
programs against normal windows .lib files, right?

The linux does reference cygwin, so it appears that someone has thought down this path before, I don't know exactly what magic is required to make it work though.

Jon, you might also search for "libopenal" along with cygwin ... if cygwin packaged openal, I bet that is what they'd call it.
