I just compiled in on the Cygwin machine we have.  I did not have any
of the problems you had.  I compiled my own version of mpich2-1.3.2p1
with the configure line

  ./configure --prefix=/home/walter --with-pm=gforker --enable-fast --disable-f77 --disable-fc

Then I set the environment variables, configured, and built it.

  export CC=/home/walter/src/mpich2-1.3.2p1/bin/mpicc

This gave me the non-Pyre version without HDF5.  Then I ran the

/home/walter/src/mpich2-1.3.2p1/bin/mpirun -np 4 bin/CitcomSRegional.exe  examples/Regional/input.sample

and it seems to work.
