digitalmars.D - Updating cygwin's gdc

Anyone know about how to get this updated?

The currently version of gdc in cygwin is ancient -- based on DMD 0.125.

Of course the gcc in cygwin is pretty old too 3.4.4.  But gcc hasn't 
changed nearly as much in that time as gdc has.

/usr/share/doc/Cygwin/gcc-gdc-3.4.4-3.README has the build instructions. I never tried it myself, though. You may ping David Friedman or Dave Korn on the cygwin mailing list. Ciao Tom
