Oracle Berkeley DB is the industry-leading open source, embeddable 
database engine that provides developers with fast, reliable, local persistence 
with zero administration. Oracle Berkeley DB is a library that links directly 
into your application. Your application makes simple function calls, rather than 
sending messages to a remote server, eliminating the performance penalty of 
client-server architectures. Oracle Berkeley DB eliminates the overhead of SQL query 
processing, enabling applications with predictable access patterns to run faster.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the
http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your system.
Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up 'db../libdb../tcl-db..'
from the 'Database Libs' category (it should already be selected).

Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need to
find a mirror which has this update, please choose the one nearest to you:

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
