Cygwin installs wrong version of boost

I just downloaded and ran setup-x86_64.exe, and installed a new cygwin 
environment.  I selected libboost-devel version 1.55*, as I have a 
project that has been tested against that particular version of boost.  
However, when I review the installation preview that shows me which 
packages will be installed, it shows 1.57* will be installed.  Huh?  I 
didn't select 1.55.  I selected 1.57.  Why is Cygwin disregarding my choice?
