Ah, that means it may be neccessary to rebuild gdbm.dll and zlib.dll?
But the errors I got were with a complete install of the snapshot including
/usr/lib/... and /usr/include/... files and Configure wasn't able to find functions like e.g. time() which are in cygwin1.dll. 
Now i saw that in the snapshot libc.a is no symlink to libcygwin.a.
Perl thinks it links against libc.a, so it will 'look only' and 'not find them' in libc.a if they are only defined in libcygwin.a.
But I wondered that at compiletime (runtime?) the functions were also failing.
Now i will try again with linking libc to libcygwin, that should work better (I hope so).
