egcs != Cygwin.  Check $PATH.

You seem to have a very old installation.  The current Cygwin Bash is 2.05
and the Cygwin GCC 2 has been 2.95.2 or .3 for ages.  Even the Mingw GCC
has been at 2.95.2 since 1999.

Your first step should be to visit and install
a recent version of Cygwin, including GCC.
