Thanks for the hint (even if it took us some time to process it).

I just installed the following patch for GCC mainline which will cause
the web page to be updated within 24 hours.

  2005-06-26  Gerald Pfeifer  <>

	* doc/install.texi (Specific): Do not specify the concrete
	versions of GCC provided by Cygwin.  Simplify the part on
	building on Cygwin.

Once GCC 4.0.1 has been released, I plan to also commit the patch there.
