No: Cygwin != _WIN32.
You may be looking for a run-time setting, but no such thing exists.
A native/Cygwin dual-mode binary sounds like a clever idea, but AFAIK has
never been done before, and is probably ridiculously infeasible on the
balance of work/benefit.
You should improve your configure.in/ac to not pull in windows.h unless you
really want it.
