In the annals of the email archives, it's discussed why the gcc2 package
(2.95.3) is no longer offered as a Cygwin package. The short answer is,
it's too buggy and undependable. So you won't be able to download and
install such a package from any "respectable" mirror. If you do find it
on some mirror somewhere, don't expect any "support" from this list if
you run into problems when using that version of the compiler. You can,
of course, always build that compiler version yourself if you have a
pressing need and can't find it anywhere, with the same stipulation of
"no support" from this list for any problems you might run into.
Sorry I don't have better news for you.
