Thanks, but here's a question:  If the libgcj ABI version really changes
with every GCC major.minor release, wouldn't it then make sense to
change the libgcj DLL versioning scheme so it uses the GCC major.minor
number rather than an arbitrary version number?

In other words, why not cyggcj-4.8.dll?  This would allow easy
automation of Cygwin's LIBGCJ_SONAME, and everybody would know what
GCC version it's based on.
