I just downloaded it few days ago (unfortunately I cannot remember where I
originally got it from) but I've just found out that you can download the archive from .
Anyway it's part of the Cygwin GCC project and not the Delorie's one (in
facts it relies upon the cygwin.dll, so I think you won't ever find it in
the dj distribution).
To tell the whole truth it didn't turn out to be a complete success, as I
couldn't make it work properly (I was trying to burn a CD set from a
Slackware DVD distribution) and I had to switch back to the old boot&root
floppy images...

I hope this will help.
