this offer is way cool.  Thanks for doing this, because this allows my lazy
self to switch to the latest gcc to build Cygwin without having to build
the compiler and all the stuff myself.  Really cool.

I've just tested to build Cygwin with this gcc, and I have only two small

- libbfd.a and the bfd.h header have to be manually installed, otherwise
  I can't build dumper.exe.  It would be nice to get a minimal cygwin-bfd
  runtime package as well to support my lazyness even more. :)

- The w32api headers are in their own w32api include directory, but the
  w32api link libs are in sys-root/usr/lib instead of sys-root/usr/lib/w32api
  where they belong.  I think this should be fixed.

Other than that, thanks again.  I think this deserves a gold star.
