In CMake, CXXFLAGS and others are only used at configuration time, so running CMake as:


Should prepend the flags to the others used. Note that this will only work the first time you run, so if you have already run CMake you will need to either remove the CMakeCache.txt file and reconfigure, create a new build directory and start from scratch, or run ccmake/cmake-gui, make the advanced options visible (press 't' in ccmake, tick the 'Advanced tickbox in cmake-gui) and then edit the CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS variable.

Just to also note that the Cygwin plus MSVC combination is not tested or supported at the moment, though obviously we'd be interested to hear if you get it working and any issues like this.
