I don't think this is a typo. It's rather a private symbol inside gcc
(or one of its libraries).

And this is the point: this symbol is never used in Geany nor in
Scintilla. I assume you are missing a gcc/g++ library or anything else
is wrong with your compiler installation within Cygwin.
Mostly unrelated to Geany, I'm afraid. But I didn't play with Cygwin
for a few years, so I can't say that much.

The question which raises to me:
why are you doing that at all? That is, why do you want to compile
Geany in Cygwin? I think the native Windows port is faster and at least
easier to use.
