No, at least not from this site.  If the programs are truly GPL, they should
provide the DLL and the source, although they probably aren't strictly in 
violation of the GPL if they don't, since I think the offer to provide this
stuff is limited to 3 years.  (Don't flame me on that because I didn't 
check the GPL to see if my memory is correct on this.)  B18 is more than 3
years old.  Anyhow, if the programs you require were built against B18, they 
must be GPL'd in which case you can grab the source and build against the 
current Cygwin release, which you'd be better off with.  Alternatively, you 
can search the net for B18.  If you find it, you'll be on your own since that 
release is many years out of date and not supported by this list anymore.  Go 
to to get the current net release.
