Well, on Monday I recompiled on cygwin, but without --disable-synamic. The
above symbols look O.K. to me - they belong to termcap (IIRC terminfo
versions are called tigetnum etc). What version of Cygwin and utilities

Unless you forced ncurses, it should not link terminfo. It did not in my
case (yesterday). But I did not do clean reconfigure - just make in build
directory (it did run config.status --recheck). I will be able to check on

No. I repeat, it did not (until recently) for me. But the above does not
look like terminfo stuff.
