Yes, of course there is, and that is exactly what I was trying to tell

packages, which include all the Cygwin-local patches.  Note that the
filenames I quoted are "gcc-core-3.3.3-3-src.tar.bz2" and not
"gcc-core-3.3.3.tar.gz".  The former is the Cygwin source package name,
the latter is the upstream source tarball.
