No. Someone else is currently working on cygwin-perl; hopefully
whenever perl5-porters gets around to releasing 5.6.1, that individual
will make a 5.6.1 build available on sourceware.

Very few, probably. However, the perl-5.6.0 at cygutils seems to be in
a precarious state right now. Since it no longer builds cleanly on
newer cygwin kernels, the 5.6.0 on cygwin is only usable as a pre-built
binary. Also, folks seem to be having difficulty using that pre-built
binary to build CPAN add-ons (although I haven't had a problem...)
It's gonna take some work to get perl into a 'sourceware'-ready state --
and I don't have the time to do it right now.
