This isn't required, this error is because under linux this symbols are 
runtime linked, which isn't implemented in cygwin (in truth more a windows 
dll problem), which requires  that all symbols has to be resolved at link 
time. Please patch the following line in 

-libkalarmd_la_LDFLAGS = $(all_libraries) $(KDE_RPATH)
+libkalarmd_la_LDFLAGS = $(all_libraries) $(KDE_RPATH) -ldcop -lqt-mt

Then this should be linkable.
