UPX is quite cross-platform: you can use win32 version to package lonux
a.out such as linux verison to package win32 PE.
Moreover an UPX-compressed EXE is completely self-sufficient from UPX
itself, has no memory overhead and decompresses very very fast (10Mb/sec
on the author's Pentium133 as upx.sourceforge.net says).
But if a cygwin native version is needed nonetheless I could volunteer to
package it.
