It seems to work for me. I used the gdal120-29mar2004.tar.gz I created
last night to install onto a fairly clean Cygwin machine.
$ gdalinfo --version
GDAL 220.127.116.11, released 2004/03/10

Also works correctly.
What command were you executing when asked for cyggdal-1.dll?

Yeah, I know. GDAL 1.1.9 used to compile under Cygwin gcc 2.95. I have
tried to stay with gcc 2.95 for compiling GRASS, but it is no longer
supported on Cygwin because of problems specific to C++. Are there any
general suggestions for gcc2 versus gcc3 for compiling GRASS? Right now
I am trying to have both gcc versions, and also vcc, but it is not very
handy. I am copying Grass5 in hope of some suggestions.
