FWIW I'm using Win2k and Cygwin also.  A slight difference is that I'm using
the mingw compiler via the -mno-cygwin option.  I compiled mad-0.14.2b with
the following ./configure

CC="gcc -mno-cygwin" CXX="g++ -mno-cygwin"  LDFLAGS="-mno-cygwin"  \
./configure --enable-static --prefix=/usr/local/mingw

After installing libmad I still need to tell vlc where to find it so in the
vlc ./configure:
--enable-mad  --with-mad=/usr/local/mingw

I haven't tried without using the mingw compiler, but I would assume since
most of the stuff is the same it should work without the -mno-cygwin stuff.
