As Thomas stated, using Cygwin's pre-built git binary package is probably 
the simplest solution indeed. However, if you still want to compile Git 
from source on Cygwin because you need or want the latest version, just 
install the dependencies you need using Cygwin's installer -- in that case, 
(Cygwin package) 
Each time the build fails, check wether what you miss is available through 
Cygwin's installer and install it if it is. With a little luck you may end 
up with a successful build eventually :)
