first of all, please don't send off-topic messages to cygwin-developers
list. That list, as the name suggests, is for topics on development of
Cygwin, not on various issues like 'my compiler doesn't run!'.

No, FULL means FULL. USER + GCC means you'll be lacking all sorts of
development tools. User tools provide you tools that you use as a "user"
of an Unix style system (ls, cd, shells such as bash, etc); Full gives
you tools to develop code as well (linker, assembler, compiler, etc).

This is a very reasonable question (I'm surprised it's not asked more 
often!), and if this is not in the FAQ, it should be.

Your installation is somehow botched. Without more information, nobody here 
can help, sorry.

You probably have GCC_EXEC_PREFIX defined in the environment (or have GNAT
installed -- if so, please complain to GNAT folks to avoid screwing up the 
rest of the compilers on your system!), or you have not followed the
instructions in installing the compilers.

Provide the following information:
  1. For cygwin, provide the output of cygcheck:
     $ cygcheck -s -r

  2. your environment variables (env in Cygwin, set in DOS/Win9x/NT)
  3. compiler version and some runtime info:
     $ gcc -v filename.c
     provides lots of good information.
