Heh, yes, I know. I'm the maintainer of the cygwin gcc packages.

We used to have a gpc build and then it got dropped and when I took over gcc
maintainership I threw together a newer version. It's entirely possible I did
something wrong, although it passes most of the gpc testsuite:
=== gpc tests ===
Running target any
Running testsuite ...
=== gpc Summary ===
# of tests 4946
# of expected passes 4925
# of unexpected failures 16
# of unsupported tests 5

No, I was guessing wrongly about the purpose of the crt.* files in
.../units/. I don't know what the problem is, so please do report back what
you find out from the pascal list and if there's a bug in the way I ported the
newer gpc to gcc-3.3.3, I'll fix it.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
