source of qsort.c

Five years ago I asked David Korn  and he replied:

  It's part of newlib, which cygwin links into the cygwin DLL to provide the
fundamentals of libc functionality.

  Go up one level, then down!

> Q3 ... or is there a short cut to get the qsort source?

I want to check whether the bug I found and reported in qsort is fixed by now.
The links he provided don't work anymore.
The Cygwin site remains a black hole for me.

So again: how do I get the current qsort.c source??
