Have you used a Linux distribution for example? There's a single release

rather meaningless, because the first thing you do is install updates to
various packages (possibly

That's very similar to cygwin. You have a base version of the cygwin DLL,

I suspect that the best you'll have is to explicitly test and ship your
product with a specific
version of the packages that you use.
