Cygwin v1.5.5-1: g++ produces "Entry Point Not Found" error

     Sorry that I had forgot to include a cygcheck attachment, here it 
is...  In any case, the Cygwin v1.5.5-1 is a fresh installation downloaded 
directly from using the default setup.exe.  I do wanted to 
point out one thing however, I did encounter some problems during the 
usage of setup.exe to download "all" of the files first into my computer 
to install cygwin.  I had to make several attempts in order to download a 
complete setup of "all" the files.  I wonder if this has anything to do 
with the problem because I only found 1 copy of cygwin1.dll inside the 
installed cygwin directory.
