@subsection Compilation under Cygwin
The main issue with the 1.5.x Cygwin versions is that newlib, its C library,
does not contain llrint(). You need to upgrade to the unstable 1.7.x versions,
or leverage the implementation in MinGW (as explained below).
Please use Cygwin 1.7.x as the obsolete 1.5.x Cygwin versions lack
llrint() in its C library.

The experimental gcc4 package is still buggy, hence please
use the official gcc 3.4.4 or a 4.2.x compiled from source by yourself.
Install the current binutils-20080624-2 as they work fine (the old
binutils-20060709-1 proved buggy on shared builds).
Then create a small library that just contains llrint():

The current @code{gcc4-core} package is buggy and needs this flag to build
shared libraries:

If you want to build FFmpeg with additional libraries, download Cygwin
"Devel" packages for Ogg and Vorbis from any Cygwin packages repository:
