So?! It is still incorrect for the --target of the GCC build to be
x86_64-pc-cygwin.  My example didn't specify a different build from
host.  I ran across this from a package that was refusing to accept the
config.guess build triplet so I tried specifying both.  At that point it
failed to find x86_64-unknown-cygwin-gcc.

And ./configure --build=`/path/to/config.guess` will not work either as
currently delivered.

x86_64-pc-cygwin IS NOT CORRECT.  It needs fixed in the build process.
