Don't use Cygwin, use MSYS+MinGW instead.

Having said that, it is unlikely that libvirt builds at the moment
under Windows, although it could be made to work again with a little
effort.  We badly need someone, or a group of people, to take
responsibility for starting a project to keep libvirt compiling under
Windows, and to submit patches back to fix any problems.  A daily
build report for Windows (and Mac OS X) would be good too, for anyone
who knows how to do this & has the requisite hardware/servers.

virt-p2v converts physical machines to virtual machines.  Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into Xen guests.
