Really? That's odd, works for me:

$ runhaskell Setup.lhs build --ghc-options=-mno-cygwin -v
ghc-6.8.2: unrecognised flags: -mno-cygwin
Usage: For basic information, try the `--help' option.

Also works with runhaskell Setup.lhs configure --ghc-options=-mno-cygwin

Works in the sense that it passes the flag through to ghc. Of course I'm
on unix and ghc does not recognise that flag.

What version of Cabal are you using?
