gcc-5.3.0-3 has been uploaded for 32bit and 64bit Cygwin, this release
reverts a change that causes /usr/lib/w32api to be searched before
/usr/lib, it should now behave similarly to gcc-4.

GCC5 uses a new versioning scheme, under the old scheme, it would be
5.0.3, with 5.2.0 as 5.0.2. See https://gcc.gnu.org/develop.html under
"Version Numbering Scheme for GCC 5 and Up".

This version has been built with
--with-default-libstdcxx-abi=gcc4-compatible so it should remain
compatible to GCC 4 C++ ABI.

Note that C11 with gnu extensions is now default for C. See
https://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-5/porting_to.html for more help on porting code
to GCC 5.

Changes since -2:
* Revert to gcc-4 behavior, search /usr/lib before /usr/lib/w32api.

Changes since -1:
* Fixed -rdynamic, thanks to Yaakov.
* libitm, libcilkrts enabled, also thanks to Yaakov.
