No. You'd better not mix Cygwin and MinGW libraries.

I don't think this is necessary. As a matter of fact, CLN builds with
*unmodified makefiles* just fine. However, it is necessary to modify
src/base/random/cl_random_from.cc. (see the attachment).

GNU make (supplied with MinGW) works for me.

This one fails for me too. I don't know why [yet]. Sorry, I'm not a CLN

I'm sorry to confuse you, but the only useful information in your report

Leaving aside weird format, I don't think staring through diffs of 
automatically generated files is a good idea.
