strange as 4.9.2-2 is current for both architecture

$ cygcheck -cd|grep gcc
gcc-core                                4.9.2-2
gcc-fortran                             4.9.2-2
gcc-g++                                 4.9.2-2

It could be a side effect of a messy setup.ini I think we had yesterday,
or of a stale mirror. Please try again

I assume Jonathan Yong is still working on it.
GCC is a big beast an needs a lot of time to build and validate.
