I updated the Cygwin distribution to rakudo-201004-2 to fix a wrong 
dependency to the outdated /bin/cyggcc_s.dll, which was imported from a 
private old lib in /usr/local/lib, which took precedence of one of the 
standard libs. Thanks to David Vergin for reporting and testing.

Note that current parrot and rakudo are ~10% faster due to immutable 
strings. This improvement will be released next month.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your

or "Text" and then click on the appropriate fields until the above
announced version numbers appear if they are not displayed already.

If your mirror doesn't yet have the latest version of this package after
24 hours, you can either continue to wait for that site to be updated or
you can try to find another mirror.
