Have you considered building a custom version of the latest Cygwin, and
putting it on their box in a different directory? Trying to solve this
sort of problem is unpopular on this list, but my initial research
suggests that changing the values of CYGWIN_VERSION_DLL_IDENTIFIER and
CYGWIN_INFO_CYGNUS_REGISTRY_NAME should do the job.
