Thanks for the prompt reply, Tony.

So, I downloaded "i686-w64-mingw32-gcc" from the setup packages and ran,

i686-w64-mingw32-gcc -shared sqlite3.c -o sqlite3.dll,

but it still wants me to add other DLLs.  I just want to drop the sqlite3.dll just created in another spot and run a tool using that without need of any other DLL. I know I can do it with MinGW, but I don't want to install two systems on my computer.  I know I am missing something because I know other folks have done it before.  I duckduckgo'ed some answers, but have not found anything but "use MinGW".  Is this even possible with cygwin and its packages?  Thanks for the support.
