To generalize your question, you're asking if the cygwin version of
something is unavailable when you use an option called "-mno-cygwin".
I'd think that the option would be self-documenting in this case but,
the answer is "Yes, it's intentional".
If MinGW supports curses then you probably should be using MinGW if
you don't want to have your application rely on the Cygwin DLL.
