Yep.  Going with this option.  Seems the most logical one for now.  After running ./configure, got this error,

configure: error: Building GCC requires GMP 4.2+, MPFR 2.4.0+ and MPC 0.8.0+.

So, now I am building GMP, then MPFR and then MPC.  It's going to be a lot of work, so... :-)  :Let's hope is worth it.  Thanks for your help.

Building GMP, MPFR and MPC seems like overkill. The following packages are available for Cygwin:

libgmp-devel 6.1.2
libmpfr-devel 4.0.2
libmpc-devel 1.1.0

BTW, if you're trying to build Bedrockdb, G++ 6 is likely unable to help you. The Bedrockdb developers seem to suffer a bit from "all the world is Linux" syndrome.
