`cygport *.cygport install' puts it into ${D}/usr/bin because of the 
following snippet of the .cygport file:

src_install() {
	dobin ${C}/set-gcc-default-{3,4}.sh

And then `cygport *.cygport package' puts it into the tarball for gcc4-core:

     usr/bin/set-gcc-default-3.sh \
     usr/bin/set-gcc-default-4.sh \

But isn't all this irrelevant for you?  There's no reason to keep gcc3 
around anymore, is there?
