For mysql I got the 4.021 source, and ran configure --without-server. 
For Qt I basically followed the instructions here
http://kde-cygwin.sourceforge.net/qt3/compiling.php and added
-qt-sql-mysql to the configure, and -I/path/to/mysql/includes

There are a couple of relevent threads in the dev list, just search
for cygwin in the archive.  Post your compile errors and I'll try to
help, preferrably to the other thread we have going, "anyone attempt
mythfrontend on Cygwin?", if you can.  :)

HTH and good luck!
