I noticed that too. I'm not sure which to try. Perhaps I'll try the
newest, and if that doesn't work, I'll drop back to yours.

Yes, that is what I tried. I was intrigued by the claim of increased
speed. However, when it came time to building RTEMS, it failed on the
command "sh make all install", claiming (rightfully?) that "make is a
directory". I attempted to specify the full filename for make but got a
"can't execute binary file" (working uncertain) message. Anyway, given
the Xilinx setup, I decided to stick with Cygwin at that point, rather
than muddle about further...
