This is a common problem on newer distributions of Cygwin that I believe 
they(the SDL powers that be :) are looking into.

It's a problem with nasm.exe

run  "./configure --disable-nasm" for now.

I don't remember if there was a better way than disabling nasm to 
resolve this problem. It might require an older version of nasm.exe.
