This discussion probably belongs on the tlbuild list.  I've set the 
Reply-to accordingly.

I did a grep of the luatex sources and found a large number of places 
where there are special cases for Cygwin, including many where Cygwin is 
lumped with Mingw32 and Win32.  I suspect this is what's causing the 
problem.  Cygwin is a unix-like system and is treated as such in most of 
the texlive build.  The configure scripts and libtool are usually able 
to do the right thing on Cygwin.

Maybe you should try removing some or all of the special-casing.
