It will for now.  Chris has already asked me to repackage gcc with some
minor fixes that I have made.  I was already intending to eliminate this
directory from gcc's hierarchy.  I felt I should wait until the new cygwin

posting the update this evening.  I apologize for the delay, but I cannot
post to sourceware from work.
