I believe that is a harmless warning.

Visual Studio unfortunately generates a lot of noise during the build
process that look suspiciously like real warnings, but are relatively
harmless. We should call this out in the instructions for building
WebKit on Windows, as many people seem to get hung up on this point.

Why is \cygwin\usr\include in Visual C++'s include path? This is
almost certainly the reason why you're having problems building, as it
looks to be responsible for all of the errors that you included.
