First, since you are using a compiler that has no configuration option for
it, you are probably going to have to learn how to fix some things yourself.
There are lots of problems with the PGI compilers and Amber, and adding cygwin
to the mix is probably just going to complicate things.

Second, how did you prepare your config.h file? What is the value of SFX?

Third, be sure to do a "make clean" before the make. Also, since you are
in unfamiliar territory, just try to make one program at a time. For example
cd sander; make sander.exe. Once that works, you can go back and try to
compile everything.
