Please provide absolute links in the future, especially when your site seems to
only answer to wget.

A few notes:

  1) Your shell script is either path dependant or is broken

     [elfyn@ellixia gc]$ ./ all
     -- Extracting /netrel/packages/test/gc/gc-6.1.tar.gz
     --    Hm, archive did not extract to gc-6.1 ...
     --    Renaming unpack dir gc6.1/
     mv: when moving multiple files, last argument must be a directory
     Try `mv --help' for more information.
     ./ [FATAL] status is 1.

     Can you use "Method One" or "Method Two" instead? Or atleast until you have
     tested your build script on more than one system.

  2) The patch (in the source package) contains build support files eg., *.Plo .
     Before creating the patch, please run `make distclean' in the source
     directory. It also doesn't apply correctly

     [elfyn@ellixia gc6.1]$ patch -R -p0 < ../gc-6.1-1.patch
     patching file gc-6.1/.deps/win32_threads.Plo
     patching file gc-6.1/.libs/libgc.lai
     patching file gc-6.1/CYGWIN-PATCHES/gc.README
     patching file gc-6.1/CYGWIN-PATCHES/
     patching file gc-6.1/CYGWIN-PATCHES/setup.hint
     can't find file to patch at input line 5351
     Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
     The text leading up to this was:
     |--- gc-6.1-orig/Makefile       2002-08-06 23:55:42.000000000 +0000
     |+++ gc-6.1/Makefile    2003-06-13 09:52:08.000000000 +0000

     which might be down to the build script.

  3) The Cygwin README (usr/doc/Cygwin/gc-6.1.README is incomplete, still
     contains template tags...
