Specifically, it needs the flexdll.h header.  I just updated flexdll to
the latest upstream release.

gcc3 is deprecated; distro packages should be built with gcc4, and all
Ports packages for Cygwin 1.7 are built with gcc4.  So OCaml definitely
builds with gcc4.

How soon can you rebuild ocaml with gcc4 and flexdll-0.25-1?
