Sander's response is correct. Just add the WinAVR binary installation 
executable, it includes everything you need. However, note that I'm 
trying to get a new release out this week, mainly to address some GCC 
bugs and it looks like there will be a new avrdude release with it as 
well. Also, the March release of WinAVR already includes the latest 
SRecord utilities, version 1.14. WinAVR does not need Cygwin 
installed. The required Cygwin DLLs that are needed for certain 
programs are already contained in the installation.

Which robotics club?
