I didn't do a `make install' since `make' exited with errors.  (Hmmm, but why didn't I do it anyway, gosh... stupid me). I assumed
that when make exited with an error, the build failed.

However, I just tried what you said (running `make install') and it started building (to my great surprise).  I was expecting the
cygwin dll to be built but when I checked the dlls that were built,
only  /install/i686-pc-cygwin/bin/mingwm10.dll was built.

Anything else I'm missing?
