egcs != Cygwin. Check $PATH.

You seem to have a very old installation. The current Cygwin Bash is 2.05
and the Cygwin GCC 2 has been 2.95.2 or .3 for ages. Even the Mingw GCC
has been at 2.95.2 since 1999.
Your first step should be to visit http://cygwin.com/ and install
a recent version of Cygwin, including GCC.
