I also compiled gromacs with gcc and cygwin. I found that 
the performance of the obtained mdrun is practically indistinguishable 
from its counterpart compiled with gcc under native linux.
However I would be very interrested if ever anyone has made
a direct comparison: 
Gromacs on windows compiled with MS Visual C versus gcc/cygwin.
Anybody out there who made such a comparison ??
