This is a bug in the original source code. It needs to be fixed or the
bug needs to be sidestepped. This might work, untested:

Are you using the -src package from the cygwin mirrors, and the cygport script? The rxvt shipped by cygwin has been heavily patched from upstream to support our (32bit) platform; at *minimum* you will need those patches to build the 64 bit version.

Unfortunately rxvt is pretty far down my list of priorities for porting to 64bit given its dead-as-a-doornail, ex-parrot status upstream and relative lack of users. The best I can say is, I'll get to it eventually.
