GHC is not a cygwin program. It does not use the cygwin gcc, it always
uses its own gcc anyway (which happens to be a mingwin binary) so
-mno-cygwin should not make any difference to the mingwin gcc.

I'd advice using mingw + msys with ghc under windows rather than cygwin.
Or use neither and just use a console.
