Re: is using old make.exe (3.80) (cygwin 1.5.x) within cygwin 1.7.x OK

cause of colon problems we have to use old make version 3.80 in cygwin 1.7.x.
The binary make.exe is a copy of cygwin 1.5.x installation.

Is it correct to use this version within cygwin 1.7.x?
Or do I have to rebuild the binary?

At the moment all seems to work fine - I only want to avoid future problems or
side effects.

Binaries from the Cygwin 1.5.x series are compatible with 1.7.x. There is no reason that you cannot use them. The only thing to keep in mind is if there is a newer version available for 1.7.x, as there is with make, then you'll be using an unsupported version. So if you run into a problem, you'll need to test that it is reproducible with the current version before reporting it here.
