I've moved all of the latest gcc stuff out of "test" and into "current".
This is the standard gcc 3.3.1 release from gcc.gnu.org + patches from
Danny Smith and (to a vastly lesser extent) me.  If you are interested
in checking these sources out of gcc's cvs repository, the branch tag is
cygming331.  But, please, no questions about where to go or how to do
that on the cygwin list.  Go to gcc.gnu.org for that kind of info.

So the default gcc compiler for cygwin is now gcc 3.3.1.  The 3.2
compiler is currently available as prev, but be advised that if you want
to keep this around, you should make a copy of the tar ball somewhere
since it will disappear when the next gcc update comes out.  I don't
plan on making a gcc32 package available as I did for gcc2.  Not gonna
happen.  Don't even mention it.

As previously, the gcc-mingw piece is now required if you want to use
gcc's '-mno-cygwin' option.  It should be selected automatically if you
select gcc.

There were vague reports of gcj being broken during the gcc test period
but I never saw a true bug report for this.  Since I'm not a java user,
I can only provide this as-is.

I repeat my plea for someone else to take ownership of this package.  I
would be forever grateful to whomever is willing to step forward.  I
took this package under duress because the previous maintainer
disappeared.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup, fill in all of the options, and make
appropriate choices on the "Select Packages" screen.  You'll need to
select the Devel category to see gcc and friends.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list, <http://cygwin.com/list.html>.
