a gcc for 1.5.x. I would suspect that there are folks out there that
have a cygwin install that has gcc that is not 1.5.x based.
To say "older (may be) better" wuold have sense if cygwin had "unstable
/ stable" branch like Debian, but being a single branch either you
upgrade *nothing at all* or you do upgrade everything.
Of course it's possible to want a new cmake *only* upgrading nothing
else: that's what the source package is for, isn't it? ^_^
