This is what I needed above. The command I was using,

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

will create a DLL, but it will have dependencies on some cygwin libs.  This command,

i686-w64-mingw32-gcc -shared -static-libgcc sqlite3.c -o sqlite3.dll

creates a DLL with no dependencies.  So, the option -static-libgcc is what I needed.  Thanks.

To summarize, when creating SQLite3 DLL or building any SQLite3 tools with cygwin,
1. Download the i686-w65-mingw32-gcc compiler with the setup tools (the 64 bit)
2. Get the source from sqlite.org
3. untar source
4. cd to the source directory
5. run this command:
i686-w64-mingw32-gcc -shared -static-libgcc sqlite3.c -o sqlite3.dll
