No, the issue is that you're trying to mix native and Cygwin tools with not
much of an understanding.

Mating Cynwin and Windows tools is possible, but tricky and requires clear
understanding of implications.

You should probably look into native git port. Or host a VM with native Linux
environment for your compilation needs.
