[Geany] Compiling from source on Cygwin platform

I am trying to compile Geany from source on the Cygwin platform.
I checked the requirements (GTK2, etc.), added anything that
was missing, and issued `./configure' command.
I found other dependencies that I was not aware of. I am trying
to recall them from memory, so they need verification:
Once this was installed, I tried again.
Then I was told that I still needed some parts of ...
... that I had not yet installed.
Once these were installed, I tried again.
At this point, `./configure' terminated normally. I issued the
`make' command, and it worked quite awhile. However, it
exited abnormally as follows:

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I seem to be really close
to getting a clean compile on Cygwin, so it would be really nice to
figure this out.
