This is very suspect: it should be Ocygwin-i686.
The best bet is that config/arch-osname fail to report your architecture

config/arch-osname read

  cygwin*)  arch=$HOSTTYPE; osname=cygwin;;

So maybe try to set the environment variable HOSTTYPE to i686
or what is appropriate.

We cannot really help you without the output of ./Configure
