Have you given any thought to running KnoppMyth from a CD?  You can boot 
your laptop from the CD and run it as a frontend without any hard drive 
installation.  Don't get me wrong, I want to see mythfrontend compile 
under Cygwin as well.  I just though that this might be helpful towards 
your ultimate goal.  At the very least, it may suffice until you can get 
mythfrontend to compile.
