If you're looking for the reason that gcc-3 was removed from your
computer during your recent upgrade, I believe that question has been
answered by Chris. If you're wondering why gcc-3 is not offered
as an alternate package through Cygwin now, I have offered you the
reasoning behind the current state of things. In addition, I've
provided you with ways of "resurrecting" gcc-3 on your system if
you wish to pursue that. One of these ways should be enough to
restore you to a state where you can use gcc-3 in the cases you
want to do so. Beyond that, I'm not sure what your question is.
If you have a specific one, go ahead and ask it. A continued
discussion of how and why gcc-3 is useful for you isn't a real
interesting read for most on this list IMO. Let's see if we can
bring this thread to its logical end.
