At present, the only supported way to build GnuPG on Windows is to do a
cross-compile from a UNIX running the GNU toolchain.
If you're dead-set on doing this from Cygwin (not recommended), I would
suggest beginning on an official GnuPG 2.x release.
If SVN builds fail to compile, this could be because of something you're
doing wrong, or it could be because the SVN code doesn't build. Most
development crews try to keep SVN code in a buildable state, but
problems have been known to arise.
Learn the process for building a released version of GnuPG 2.x via
Cygwin and/or MinGW. Once you can do that reliably, then you can apply
those same skills to the SVN branch if you want.
