Sounds like you're out of luck then, unless someone out there has an
entire distribution on CD circa Cygwin package version 1.5.4 or you
rebuild all the tools you need to match that DLL. You're probably
better off convincing the client to update. Either that, or get them
to provide you the environment you need to support them.
