I've been fighting with the latest stable rtorrent / libtorrent (as
have many people - FreeBSD, etc.) as it has a tendency to peg CPUs at
100%.  As a result the Cygwin release is lagging behind the upstream
release and is the reason there hasn't been a recent release.  I'm
more than happy to rebuild the current release (i.e. libtorrent14)
against the updated libopenssl, question I have is do I also need to
rebuild the previous release (i.e. libtorrent11), or can we just drop
