Have we lost Dave (hope he's OK)?  Yaakov has made several requests
for a newer GCC and I know Chuck sent an email a while back indicating
Dave's lack of activity on the various Cygwin mailing lists.

I'm stuck with rtorrent / libtorrent as a result of what looks like a
bug in the 4.3.4 libstdc++.  Are we in limbo until we hear back from
Dave (hopefully we will)?
