I suspect the latter.  You can help out by taking the set of patches to
the current Cygwin gcc package and tweaking them to apply to gcc 3.2.3
(and then sharing the result with this list).  IIRC, gcc 3.2.3 compiles
OOTB, but some Cygwin-specific additions are needed before it can become a
package.  Also, the current gcc maintainer (CGF) was seeking someone to
take over maintainership of the gcc packages, so that would be even more
