The windows feature should not be set on Cygwin

Description

In general, the assumption that Cygwin is Windows is a bad idea. Cygwin doesn't like Windows paths, though it can tolerate them in some circumstances, and process execution is done via bash, not via cmd. On a Cygwin build, the windows: entry in (features) should not be present.
