At the time of writing the released plugins cannot be built by Cygwin
from within the public umbrella repository due to the reasons you list.
You might be able to work around those issues or build your plugin using
your own build infrastructure.

If you have a choice then opt for a Unix/GNU platform (such as Linux)
where the existing build infrastructure will work.
