Hmm.  The stuff on the CD should have been cut at least six months after
B20.1.  The change logs seem to indicate that it has some cygwin32 ->
cygwin changes.

However, our master sources also check for "cygwin32" rather than
cygwin, so I guess this is why.  Geoff checked in some changes back in
October but they didn't specifically change the string which searched
for cygwin32.

Is there something different in the external binutils repository?
