Does it not work to say:

cabal install readline \
  --extra-lib-dirs=C:\cygwin\lib \
  --extra-include-dirs=C:\cygwin\usr\include \

That should work, and probably the recommendation should be for cygwin
users to edit their cabal config to at add C:\cygwin\lib and C:\cygwin
\usr\include as standard.
