I think these testsuite problems goes away if you configure with something
like ".../configure --build=i686-pc-cygwin --host=mingw32" as indicated in
the manual [1]. Or maybe it's x86_64-pc-cygwin in your case?

The rationale is that when Cygwin is used to drive a MSVC build, I have
considered it a Cygwin to MinGW cross, because that is much closer to the
truth than a native Cygwin build (which is what is assumed if you just
override CC).

But I haven't tested recently, YMMV...
