figure this one out (I think)

the first pass of the gcc (cc1) was looking for a dll "cygintl-3.dll" this could not be found. I did find "cygintl-8.dll" which shows modification as of 10/22/2006. Not sure if it is a complete fix but I copied the "cygintl-8.dll" file and renamed it "cygintl-3.dll" and the gcc now passes a rudementaly hello.c complile.

That's a truly terrible way to solve your problem. A better way would have
been to consult <> to find the package you were
missing (libintl3) and install it. I recommend you do that immediately if
you don't want to suffer from more problems as a result of your attempt

Try another mirror. <> showed me the libintl, linintl1, libintl2, libintl3, and libintl8 packages. As long as you can find the package at <>, there's going to be at least one mirror out there with the package in question.
