How to downgrade cygwin to a part. version?

I'd like to compile gxemul under cygwin, Here a nice guy who ported the source code, but the prerequisites are needing the exact versions of the libraries If I download the setup.exe from canonical cygwin web site, it automatically installs me the latest versions of all the libraries, compilers and stuff, How can I target the libraries to a particular version. Thanks Jack

If you use dynamic libraries, you can install them in a different dir and put it up-$LD_LIBRARY_PATH of the defaults. For static libraries, you need -L compiler directives to direct his attention there.
