Feel free.  Obviously the best solution would be the minimal changes to use
putenv, getenv and unsetenv where zsh digs around directly in environ with
#ifdef __CYGWIN__.  If this works, we can start adding configure checks to
see if we can do it elsewhere, since anything that reduces the number of
assumptions about the system is good.  However, `if this works' may not be
a particularly well-defined test.

Let me know if you want sourceforge developer stuff adding.
