We don't have an "R administration" mailing list, so R-devel
<https://www.r-project.org/mail.html#r-devel> seems to be a good bet.

Two bits of advice (but we should really continue in R-devel):

1. You're on Windows 10, so if you really need R running in a
Linux-like environment ASAP (why else run Cygwin?), consider Windows
Subsystem for Linux. It's not as slow as a virtual machine. 

2. Have you tried following the cygport for R-4.1.2? If you download
the source package (R-4.1.2-1-src.tar.xz) from your preferred mirror,
there's a few patches that may be needed to adjust the compiler flags to
get your build of R working.

Best regards,
