Cygwin takes down their old release packages in their repo very quickly. 
Unless you did an install in the past, and got everything you will ever 
need, I dont see a way of installing an "old cygwin". I wind up with 
missing DLL exports trying to use the "current" package of almost 
anything in the cygwin repo with an old cygwin core. So as far as I see 
it, it is impossible to test C code on old cygwins on a new 
machine/fresh install.
