0.17, because 0.18 (and .1 and .1.1) doesn't build on cygwin.  This has
been reported before:

Basically, gettext 0.18 tries to avoid auto-import, which conflicts with
cygwin gcc requiring the use of auto-import.  Gettext 0.17 was the last
that could be built on cygwin without major surgery to the makefiles,
and Chuck hasn't had time to port 0.18 into the cygwin distro yet.
