Sure it will. You can call whatever program you want from cygwin, as 
long as it is in the path. No difference to double-clicking an icon or 
something similar.

Yes, and probably not working unless you use MinGW, as you need 
windows-headers instead of Posix-style GCC. But I've compiled Python, Qt 
and some other libs using MinGW, and cygwin. So I think it should be doable.
