You can't build a native numpy for windows on cygwin. You need to build
from cmd.exe and a native python (from python.org). Note also that
building numpy with the MKL is relatively complex - we may not be able
to help you to do it completely.

Most likely, on cygwin, numpy only looks for libraries usable from
cygwin (libfoo.a, libfoo.dll). Try again under a native windows shell
