Fixed this, also updated the cygwin modules to the newest version.

CMake says that the packages are there, msbuild still fails, but with
different exit codes.

I've installed git seperately (not from cygwin) and added the git path
to the path environment variable. As I understand the cmake-logfile,
then it uses some programs (flex, sed, ...) from the git installation
and not from cygwin. Just to mention this if this might be a problem.

On a previous test, I have started the VS GUI and tried to build some
modules seperate to see if it makes any difference, after this the
linker errors occured. Before the latest build I've deleted the
wsbuild32 directory.

What version of Git do you have?  In your case it looks like git bash is being called and isn't able to execute tools\runlex.sh.

I have git version 2.6.4.windows.1 installed, and the only element of that installation on my path is "C:\Program Files\Git\cmd" which doesn't have the extra git msys utilities.  I think this is an option in the git install, however I install git using chocolatey so don't know what options the usual git installer may offer.  The choco install defaults to only gitinstall\cmd, but does have options for GitAndUnixToolsOnPath which adds gitinstall\bin which is what you have according to the build log:

         "C:/Program Files (x86)/Git/bin/bash.exe": line 0: "C:/Program Files (x86)/Git/bin/bash.exe": igncr: invalid option name

    76>Die Erstellung des Projekts "C:\Development\wsbuild32\ui\ui.vcxproj" ist abgeschlossen (Standardziele) -- FEHLER.

If you have no other reason for the git unix tools, amend your path to only have the gitinstall\cmd directory on it.  If you do need the tools for other tasks, you'll have to fix the path in your Wireshark build shell, yet another reason for a build VM.
