Can I use the Cygwin tooling for functions like fork() but compile on Linux with MinGW?

  cygwin, fork, mingw, porting, windows

I would love to get the low-level re-implementations provided by Cygwin (like fork()) to link with my Linux program being ported, but without installing Cygwin itself.

Perhaps someone with knowledge of Cygwin internals could shed some light on the subject!
