That syntax works for me.  Are you sure you're using Cygwin's windres?

I figured it out. If POSIXLY_CORRECT is set in the environment, it causes the
problem I was having. This should probably be documented somewhere.

From http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man3/opterr.3.html:

By default, getopt() permutes the contents of argv as it scans, so that eventually all the nonoptions are at the end. Two other modes are also implemented. If the first character of optstring is '+' or the environment variable POSIXLY_CORRECT is set, then option processing stops as soon as a nonoption argument is encountered.
