3PP source code question (IANAL)

Are 3PPs that bundle an old version of cygwin1.dll required in any way
to provide the source code of their app so that I can recompile it
with a modern version of cygwin1.dll?

I have used Foundstone's (now part of McAfee) free tools (found here for some time and a
few of them use the cygwin dll (Pasco, Galleta, Rifiuti).

However, only Pasco
( includes the
source code.

They are all bundled with this cygwin1.dll:

The dll is over three years old!

Should I even bother trying to get the source code out of them?
