What was the error message?

Have you tried building it with g++ 4.8.2 under Ubuntu 12.04?
There are PPAs for it
or you could build a gcc 4.8.2 from source.

There's a possibility that g++4.8.2 is stricter than g++4.6.4 and your
code won't build with g++4.8.2 on any platform, in which case the
Right Thing (tm) is to correct the errors in your project.

I'm typing this on an Ubuntu LTS 12.04 so I can't check what the
previous version of GCC is on Cygwin, but it's probably some other
4.8.x so choosing "previous" in Cygwin's setup.exe probably won't

Your options include building a GCC 4.6.4 from source or the Cygwin
